MEADVILLE, Pa. (PRWEB) July 15, 2020
“Sea of Forgetfulness”: a brilliant novel about a budding romance amidst the darkness of personal struggles is the creation of published author Kareena Gracia-Desir. She served as a youth director at her home church for over a decade and has been in education for over twelve years. She has a passion for not just writing but forging community and helping others find and follow their own dreams.
Gracia-Desir shares, “For Anna, having grown up in a small church being loved and respected by the people around her matters more to her than her own sanity but her perfect persona begins to crack under the heavy weight of secrets and lies.
‘Protecting’ her family from ugly truths seems like the “right” thing to do but the truth is she can’t admit to anyone that something ugly has happened to her, changed her in ways she can’t even begin to grasp. She sits quietly in church, silently raging against a God she feels has betrayed her. Closing her heart, she decides no one else would get close enough to hurt her, including God.
“Michael, a newcomer to their small town, is a Christian man with his own battle scars. He wasn’t looking for love, but he wasn’t expecting to meet anyone like Anna. From the moment they met, he felt something more powerful than he could explain. It shocked him how easily he could see beyond the performance, saw the pain she was so good at hiding. He couldn’t help but try and save her. What he doesn’t realize is that the journey could cost him more than he could ever imagine. Could their love be the answer or would it open the door to things neither of them are ready to handle?”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Kareena Gracia-Desir’s new novel is about unexpected love and the ultimate power of a God that can find us in the darkest moments of our lives and create beauty from the embers of a burnt out soul.
Here, readers will find a complex narrative that will challenge them to live and love authentically as they follow along Anna and Michael’s journey.
