Stories that resonate with the heartbeat of your soul.
I wrote this book for those dealing with issues from their past and not being able to fully move forward. For the woman struggling with the absence of her father or a mother she can’t “reach.” For the man who lost his childhood because he had to protect his family from the man who should’ve been protecting them. For the person using sex, alcohol, and other vices to help numb the pain of it all. For that woman or man faced with an unwanted pregnancy. For that person considering suicide. For the abandoned, abused, and the lied to. For someone struggling with who she is, afraid of the person he sees in the mirror, and the one tired of trying to just be. You are who I wrote this book for. We are all on a journey, trying to put our pieces together, hoping at some point to make sense of it all. Anything that can help us along the path is a blessing. It is my prayer that Parallel Pasts is that “anything” for you.
A story about two individuals fighting their pasts for the chance of everything they’ve never had, and in the process, learn to live a more authentic, fulfilling life.
I wrote this book to tackle a big issue in relationships: the consequences of denying the truth. The truth is many of us have been in relationships we had no business being in, and unfortunately, some of us still are. For myriad reasons, we entertain people we know good and well we are not interested in long term (often, not even short term), yet we go on date after date, spend night after night, and before we know it, feelings have grown for the wrong person. Marriage comes (maybe) then kids (not always in that order), and it’s then when we face the truth: this person is not who I was supposed to be with. But you knew that at the gate and entered anyway. I wrote this book for you. Find out who you are, what you want and need, and be honest with yourself first before you allow someone else into the equation.
Sydney Holmes and Brandon Carter find out what happens when the truth is revealed in marriage and how to put the pieces together as a result.
