I want the readers to believe in themselves and to never give up. To see the importance of family and how love is very strong.

Tragedy strikes Lucas Clarkson more than once on his life journey, and he has to make difficult decisions between his dream and his family in Susanne Bellefeuille’s first novel, “Path of Lucas: The Journey He Endured” (published by Balboa Press). It is a book about family and strength and how one man can overcome adversity to keep his family together.

Bellefeuille believes readers will relate to the book and its characters because many people face the same situations as Lucas. The story is based on the true personal experiences of her parents.

“There are many tragedies that Lucas faces and not once (does) he ever (give) up. The love for his family is the most important thing in his life,” she says. “I want the readers to believe in themselves and to never give up. To see the importance of family and how love is very strong.”

An excerpt from “Path of Lucas”:
Lucas gently touches her hair and then gives her a kiss on the cheek. He sits down on the chair beside her bed and holds her hand. “Isabelle, I love you. Tomorrow, when you wake up, I hope that you will remember us as a family. Please, Isabelle—I need you, and the children need you. Whatever happens, Isabelle, I will stay by your side until you completely recover from this tragic illness. Then we will be back together with our children, at home, like it was,” says Lucas as he puts his head down and starts to cry.
