Springfield, VA (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
From Martin Ratick, the prolific author of "Forsaking All Others," "Four Faces of Jezebel," "Claw of the Jaguar," "Faith Of The Fathers," and "Kiss a Green Frog and Find Your Prince" comes new inspiring fiction entitled "A Romantic Anthology". Inspired by his own love story, Ratick penned four romantic novellas and compiled them into this one heartwarming collection.
"A Romantic Anthology" is a book whose relevance transcends into reality, inspiring readers from all walks of life in four different movements of the heart and soul, like a beautiful symphony of love. The first story, "The Face on the Cover", helps spur readers into a strong sense of hope and belief in soul mates, something Ratick has strongly believed in after finding his at an early age.
The second story, "To Love Again", reminds people that despite the ever-growing power and capabilities of information technology found in any computer, nothing beats the old-fashioned way of presenting a beautiful diamond ring in a tiny little box, and matching it with the most melodious words ever pronounced in a question, "Will you marry me?"
The third tale in the book, "Rebecca: Her Story," tells readers once more of the magic that can happen on Valentine’s Day, which may lead to a lifetime of love and commitment. Finally, "Two Immigrant Kids" unveils the story of a brilliant immigrant boy and a beautiful but blind girl that will open readers’ eyes to the mystery of love, that although "blind", makes people see with its eyes and the real reasons for living.
Spinning together timeless themes of love and romance and the humor and tension found in them, "A Romantic Anthology" is a stirring collection that is sure to keep readers spellbound as they live each adventure with the characters in the stories – stories evoking powerful emotions, and providing a welcome respite from the daily cares of the world.
