Bethlehem, PA (Vocus) September 8, 2010
Blending the elements of romance, suspense, and a little mysticism, author Carolyn Hechler invites readers with Michael The Black Rose, her captivating book released through Xlibris.
While trying to escape his unsavory family, Michael finds himself traveling throughout Europe under strange identities, unexpectedly becoming a lead vocalist in a band. Without warning, tragedy strikes and threatens everything he has worked for—even his life. Not long after the catastrophe, however, the tides turn for Michael. The tragedy has brought forth a beautiful lady—introduced by a common friend—whom he falls in love with. Here, readers will witness all the twists and turns in his life as he struggles to make sense of his past while keeping it from getting the best of him.
Between the covers of this modern-day American story, dark sides of human nature will appear, but with hope and liberation, change happens. Readers will discover that people can go through tragedy and heartache but can still make a bright future for themselves if they are determined enough.
This book will be featured at this year’s Frankfurt International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany on October 6 to 10, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
