When we hold on to the past, we take on other people’s pain and make them ours; letting go is the only way to gain it all.
Miami Beach, Fla. (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
The past can be haunting, especially for Carmine. After trying to escape, he finds himself face-to-face with everything he was looking to erase.
M. Spio provides a love story that breaks down the barriers of race in a heartwarming tale of a Klansman’s son seeking redemption and forgiveness of the past and a patient, forgiving African American woman in “A Song for Carmine.”
Carmine is faced with the demons of his past and must make life-altering decisions in order to find a life worth living.
Set in the Deep South in the Appalachian Mountains, Carmine faces the challenges of an interracial love, an alcoholic father and learning how to forgive. Spio wrote this book to remind others that love can solve anything.
“When we hold on to the past, we take on other people’s pain and make them ours; letting go is the only way to gain it all,” Spio said.
