Does true love really last forever? In his new novel, Heth, author Ron Kaplan invites readers to discover the answer in the lives of two remarkable people and explore the essence of love in the light of life’s biggest questions.

In his riveting tour de force, Kaplan introduces richly drawn characters whose lives become irrevocably entwined in love and loss, trust and mistrust, pain and redemption. David Goldfarb, a star high school football quarterback who prefers to live in the wild side. David is the exact opposite of the dark-eyed Italian beauty, Mary Martino. Mary possesses an innocence that David has never seen before. Soon their paths will cross and will lead to a series of events that will teach each of them something about life and love; lessons that will change them forever.

Drawing from the same inspiration that gave the literary world indelible classics like Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Heth is a modern parable of young yet true love with a stunning, unforgettable twist.
