In the world we live in now, the powerful and the greedy are ravaging our countryside with little reference to higher values of beauty and peace. I think that these issues are deeply felt by many.
SYDNEY (PRWEB) February 28, 2017
Patrick G. Lewis has always enjoyed a fascination with the beauty and charm of the natural world. Aware how often scientific thinking and desire for wealth has tended to limit humans’ perception of nature, much to their detriment, he aims to deepen readers’ appreciation of the natural world by writing a compelling novel, “Dragonfly” (published by Xlibris AU).
This book captivates readers with a tale of romance between two people of diverse backgrounds and interest in nature. The hero, Michael, is drawn into the rural life of Gwyn with all her passionate love of nature and spiritualism. It conflicts so much with Michael's conservative background. However forces outside of their control work to push them apart, until Gwyn's deep love of nature and environment is severely threatened. Can their love stand the tests of time?
“In the world we live in now, the powerful and the greedy are ravaging our countryside with little reference to higher values of beauty and peace. I think that these issues are deeply felt by many,” Lewis says. “Sadly on the other side many good people are paralyzed by well meaning conservatives.” It is the author’s hope that readers will identify with the well-drawn characters and explore the issues which are dear to their hearts.
A thought-provoking and evocative read, “Dragonfly” reminds readers how life and nature are so fragile, so they need to treasure and enjoy their richness while they can.
