First Bruno...Now This

Ron Welliver

About the Book

First Bruno...Now This tells the story of two brothers from Hyde Park, Massachusetts, brought up in the same household in the 1970s. For any outsider, their lives appeared perfectly normal. But what is normal? Ron Welliver's family had a strict, hardworking, church-going mother, and a quiet ghost of an introverted father who folded himself inward in his haze of alcoholism. The author takes the reader into the dark world of his brother's ways of the street and the code of honor that, to him, made sense. In the end it would cost him his family, and later, his life.

Is upbringing nature or nurture? Read how one brother stays a problematic, small time criminal drug abuser, while the other brother becomes a family man and street cop of thirty-one years.
