Homeless, Penniless and Without Hope, How Can They Possibly Be Heroes?

Share Article

Heroes must look and act like heroes, a common misconception in our culture and one that "Sunset Tomorrow" renounces. We bestow larger-than-life status on professional athletes, performers, and celebrities when in fact they do little more than what they are paid to do.

Although a work of fiction, "Sunset Tomorrow" examines the flaws in the concept that to be "famous" is to be a hero. It looks deep into the heart of the protagonist for truth and through his eyes finds a new perspective. The only common denominator among real heroes is the depth of their compassion for others. And If sympathy and courage are the elements required to produce a genuine paladin, then the characters in this story are well equipped.

Critics are beginning to agree that Sunset Tomorrow is a small book that leaves a big footprint. This is what one book reviewer has to say.

"Follow along as a group of 'homeless' friends undertake an extraordinary task to grant the birthday wish of a dying boy. Along the way you will see their struggles to fulfill that wish and the deeper story of how they are changed in the process. It is a story of courage, devotion, acceptance, hope and love.

It is no exaggeration for me to say that this is one of the best books I have ever read. The story is engaging and enlightening. The characters are people I would like to know and the telling of the tale is perfect. The author made me laugh, cry and most importantly, believe. It caused me to see from a new perspective and touched me as few books can. I thank you Mr. Tibbs for allowing me the pleasure of this read and I would be honored to repeat the experience with any of your other work. You are superb."

Truth can be a harsh, unpleasant light, but good fiction can bring it into focus and at the same time entertain us.
