And he gave the boy his belessing. The boy could see in his father' s gaze a desire to be able, himself, to travel the world- a desire that was still alive, despite his father' s having had to bury it, over dozens of years, under the burden of struggeling for water to drink, food to eat, and the same place to sleep every night of his life.
Is " ' s" here "is" ? if it is "is", is there special grammer that follows this rule --> "to be verbs(am, is, are)+having+pp+to+simple verb " ? Could anyone explain me when we use this structure?
Sorry if I made some mistakes, my English is not perfect. Lots of thanks for your help.
