Prayer Flag: A Life Of Guilt, A Quest For Forgiveness is a work of literary fiction with plenty of cultural and interpersonal drama and was penned by author Peter Prinsloo. The central character is Richard Low, a lawyer who finds himself faced with a challenge that will change the course of his life when he discovers the confession of an ex-soldier turned multi-millionaire. The deathbed revelation of Martin Simmons sends Richard on a quest to repatriate a Japanese soldier’s prayer flag from some fifty years prior, traveling to Nagasaki in search of forgiveness and peace on his behalf. What results is an introspective novel that explores the idea of prejudices, both known and unknown to us.
One of the most enigmatic and engrossing things about the writing of author Peter Prinsloo is his attention to detail with the presentation of thought and emotion in his characters. Richard begins rather stiffly, and it’s in the unpacking of his very soul that we find much of the action of the plot taking place, particularly after he meets the beguiling Asami and begins to loosen the grip on his heart a little. Slow-burning in its narrative quality, the character arcs and questioning themes take center stage to produce a novel that requires us to stop and think and also reflect on ourselves and our innate prejudices in the process. Overall, I’d highly recommend Prayer Flag as an accomplished work of fiction for literary fans who seek depth and complexity in their reads.
