This novel will undoubtedly be one of the most unusual love stories you will ever read. Beginning in the 1940’s, it chronicles the love affair between Evelyn and her lover, who is sculpted throughout time to the present day. When only 17 years old, she finds him half-buried in the backyard of the North Carolina farm she has inherited. He is not as he seems. With a touch of the supernatural, this is a story about the power of the land, the love of horses, secrets, and the strength of families to get through prejudices. What this passionate couple does to protect their love is both mysterious and inspiring.
The author is a graduate of the creative writing program at the University of Florida and shows much promise with this first novel.
