Supreme Sacrifice, is my new novel reminiscent of both Death of a Salesman and Eat Pray Love replete with guilt, spiritual awakening, and ultimate redemption. It guides the reader through a garden of life—choked with weeds of addiction, guilt, blame—yet affirms our faith in the human spirit to cultivate understanding and peace in our lives.
April, the child of an alcoholic, is traumatized by her father’s mysterious death at 47 and many disturbing childhood memories. The book follows her personal journey, from the 1960s until the 1990s. The first half of the story is told in flashbacks that bring the family’s disintegration, and April’s belief that she caused her father’s death, to vivid life. The last half of the book follows her spiritual journey reminiscent of Eat, Pray, Love. Like her adopted home of Florida, she is eventually filled with sunshine and possibilities ultimately unlocking the pain of her past and the answers to her father's mysterious accident.
