Melissa James, a passionate writer, author, and music lover currently residing in San Jacinto, California with her husband Ken, has completed her new book “A Matter of Pride”: a defining work of fiction that tells the story of Heather and her perplexing romance with two equally distinct men amidst the escalating turmoil of war.

Author James describes how devastating and demoralizing secrets can be, especially if uncovered by the person he or she is least favorable with: “Jenny bit her thumb. Her strawberry curls bounced around her oval face. Her small nose, sprinkled with a generous dusting of freckles, turned up ever so slightly. Pale lashes adorned huge green eyes, sparkling with awe and wonder. She was completely caught up in the excitement and danger of her sister’s secret. She pranced about the nonspouting platitudes about star-crossed lovers. For a young woman on the verge of her engagement, Jenny was still a naive schoolgirl. ‘Oh, Heather, you’re so lucky. Judson loves you so very much....I know, I can feel it in my heart; everything will work out for the best in the end. You’ll see.’ And as she sailed out of the room, she called over her shoulder, ‘Lunch is ready.’”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Melissa James’s impassioned story reflects the unyielding pride of men and the delicate nature of women in this brilliantly crafted masterpiece that looks into the heart of secrecy and scandal.

Readers who wish to experience this plot-driven work can purchase “A Matter of Pride” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo, or Barnes and Noble.
