- Living in Fisher’s Point was racked with hardships. Raising well-adjusted, loving children there was nearly impossible. Catherine Kinkay gave birth to five children there, and four she raised with the help of her oldest daughter Brae to adulthood.
Survival was hard on the island town, and prosperity was viewed by the resentful townsfolk with suspicion and envy. Gossip fueled every conversation, and no one in Fisher’s Point liked to target anyone else better than someone who was doing better than they were.
The Kinkay family was close, something Fisher’s Point didn’t see much of and understood even less. The loving family of Brea and her younger sister and two younger brothers Jonathan and Danny were the exception in a town festering with ill will. Brea raised her younger siblings as best she could with what they had. She faced her own heartbreaks and personal attacks, one of which left her a mother at a tender age. From there, the Kinkay family fought injustices, suffered storms, and loved through nightmares and lean triumphs that would have torn apart lesser people.
That mean-spirited, conniving mentality of Fisher’s Point culminated in the final moments of Brea’s youngest brother’s life. Jonathan was everything the men of the town wanted to be, but weren’t willing to work for. Talented in his successes and easily turning the eye of beautiful women, Jonathan Kinkay was a target. His open nature and generous heart and hand bought him business clients and the affections of women, and enemies. Some of the men in Fisher’s Point wouldn’t tolerate that.
Who Killed Jonathan Kinkay? Is written honestly, sometimes painfully so, by the young girl-turned-woman who lived the ordeals of both her brothers dying young, nearly before her very eyes. She weathered the responsibilities and wrong shoved onto her at a young age to become a successful woman in her own right. Her story is told without angst and self-pity, without vengefulness, and always with her eyes on God’s direction for her life.
