Author Ron Kaplan marks his debut in the world of literature with a novel that explores the essence of love in light of the tragedies and triumphs of two remarkable people. Filled with exquisitely nuanced insights, “Heth” draws from the same inspiration that resulted in indelible classics like “Romeo and Juliet” and “Pride and Prejudice”.

In his riveting tour de force, Kaplan introduces richly drawn characters whose lives become irrevocably entwined in love and loss, trust and mistrust, pain and redemption. David Goldfarb, a star high school football quarterback who prefers to live in the wild side. David is the exact opposite of the dark-eyed Italian beauty, Mary Martino. Mary possesses an innocence that David has never seen before. Soon their paths will cross and will lead to a series of events that will teach each of them something about life and love; lessons that will change them forever.

A modern parable of the joys and absurdities of relationships, “Heth” is a poignant story peopled by broken yet real souls on an extraordinary journey of discovering what it means to love.
