Melynda Taylor’s entertaining and thoughtful new romance novelFor Prayers Not Answered” (published by Balboa Press) belongs in readers’ beach bags this summer.

Sybil is divorced, running a business and rearing a teenage son when she is introduced to Lucas, a handsome Portuguese man. Early in the relationship, when Lucas asks what he can do to make her more comfortable, Sybil replies that she fears she has not escaped her former marriage to a powerful and controlling man without emotional damage. This candid response begins a long, serious, playful and confessional conversation between the lovers that becomes the spine of the novel.

An excerpt from “For Prayers Not Answered”:

“Living with Knox threw me into a spiritual crisis. Here was an unambiguous instance where I was doing what I considered right and good, and my loving behavior served to inflame his cruelties. Knox’s corruption woke me up, and hard as it may be to believe, now that I’m through it, I am grateful for it and thank God for prayers not answered.”

“The character of Lucas embodies the theme of the book,” Taylor says, “which is about living from the heart, loving life, and embracing everything in it, making him, pretty much, the ideal man.”
