Columbia, SC (PRWEB) April 23, 2012
Aaron L. Ashford’s first book, Getting Closure, has been hailed as “a well crafted and enjoyable read” that is “very satisfying,” by literary critics such as Apex Reviews. It is an interesting narrative that integrates the author’s knowledge of psychology and counseling into the lives and scenarios that the characters find themselves in.
One of the main protagonists, Jason, is a successful, single, good looking man with no children. He’s what every woman is looking for. When he meets Angela, deep down he knows that she is the woman of his dreams, but ghosts of girlfriends from his past remain in his present and haunt him daily. Despite his triumphs as a marriage therapist he is simply unable to commit. Will Angela’s ultimatum be enough?
Another character, Kevin, has done his best to conceal his wandering ways and keep his marriage to Sharon intact for the sake of his children. In his efforts to give them the two- parent home he never had, he over looks the fact that he is in a marriage headed nowhere fast. His loyalty blinds him to a truth with life altering consequences when a mystery woman shows up with assertions of Sharon’s infidelity.
Everything that ensues will make this the hottest summer ever, and have everyone scrambling to get the closure they desperately need! These relatable and riveting tales come together to create a novel that readers can’t seem to put down. When asked about the premise of his novel, Ashford responded, “When people are broken and never heal the only thing they know is how to hurt other people. Getting closure is necessary to move on.”
