Synopsis for my upcoming book, Sacrifices In The Name of Love

I'm almost finished with rewriting my next book, Sacrifices In The Name of Love, so I thought I'd give you a brief synopsis here and see what you think.

As teenagers, how often do we heed the advice our parents give us? Better still, how often does their advice cause us to do just the opposite of what they tell us to do? Well, its no different for teenagers Trey Martin, a black guy, and Tessa Phillips, a white girl, who are neighbors in a small Louisiana town in, Sacrifices In The Name of Love.

Sacrifices In The Name of Love, is a coming of age story about two teenagers, Trey Martin and Tessa Phillips, who like most teenagers, gives into desire and partake in the pleasures of the forbidden fruit. But before long theyll realize there is a high price to pay for their pleasures, and will give truth to the saying, Whatevers done in the dark will come to light.

When Trey's family move next door to the Phillips, Tessa's father, Don, a self-professed racist, openly objects and spews racial threats and insults at the Martins, hoping to deter them from moving in and exposing the secret hes been harboring all his life, to no avail. Tessa is aware of her fathers racist beliefs, but they arent enough to keep her from desiring Trey. Tessas mother, Delores, idly stands by her husbands side, all the while harboring secrets of her own.

As Tessa's desires intensify with each passing day, Trey discovers her watching him, and so begins their afternoon trysts. Eventually they get more than they bargain for, and soon find themselves having to make the ultimate sacrifice, all in the name of love. Feeling trapped after her indiscretions are finally brought to light, Tessa hi-tails it out of town to a new life, fearing the repercussions of her actions from her father, thus leaving behind the love of her life, as well as the product of their love. Haunted by recurring dreams that shes needed back home, Tessa returns back to Louisiana after a four-year hiatus and discovers that the life she once knew is no more.

Tessa and Trey's journey will evoke all kinds of emotions from you, as you become familiar with them. They will take you on a roller coaster ride filled sexual escapades heavily laced with love, lust, lies, deceit, secrets, loss and sacrifices. It wont take long for either to realize that some sacrifice come with heartache and pain.

What lessons will they have to learn through the school of hard-knocks called life? Can they forgive each other, their transgressions? With all they endure, can there be a happily-ever-after for any of them?

Please hit me back and let me know what you think.

Love & Peace,
