Brian Palmer's debut novel, "The Last Page," is set to be released by Publish America on October 16th, 2004. A contemporary fiction novel set in both California and Washington State, the novel is a story of love, forgiveness, closure and the redemptive power of second chances.
Karen Sanders is a barista with a painful past that she keeps secret from everyone. The people she encounters at The Coffee Cove reinforce her belief that one can judge someoneÂs character from a distance without ever having to get to know them. She does not trust because trust can be broken.
Travis Miller is an unemployed college graduate who has recently moved to Tacoma, Washington, seeking to find a direction for his life that will further distance him from his own difficult past. Passionless, loveless and haunted by death, he has taken to typing furiously at The Coffee Cove in silence everyday.
Unable to come to any conclusions about Travis after months of observation, Karen decides to introduce herself to him. The unexpected journey that follows will teach them about the vitality of words, the importance of human interaction, the need for love, and the redemptive power of second chances.
To quote one reviewer: "Brian Palmer has brought this story to life in a way that draws you in and makes you feel like you are right there with his characters. The story is full of drama, forgiveness and the power of love. It will keep you interested from beginning to end. I was unable to quit reading and finished most of it in just a few hours. IÂd definitely recommend it to anyone. It is a must read kind of book."
--Julie A. Bowles, Author of "Her Uncertain Future" & "ElizabethÂs Ultimate Sacrifice"
"This being my first go-round as a published writer, what astounds me more than anything is the interest and support that I continue to receive from absolute strangers concerning this novel," said Mr. Palmer. "The excerpt I currently have posted online has been viewed well over 1,300 times in about seven months and has been reviewed over 80 times, mostly by folks who don't know me. Thankfully, most of them have enjoyed it," he said with a grin.
