Since Beyond Nostalgia’s recent release, the Kindle has already been on four Amazon Best Sellers lists--at the same time. It has also been on four of their “Hot New Releases” and three “Top Rated” lists. BN now has twenty-eight 5-stars reviews on Amazon.
What follows is a short description of Beyond Nostalgia.
Born with blue in his collar instead of his veins, best-selling author Dean Cassidy chronicles his soul-scarring rise from New York's darkest alleys to a place high atop the literary world. Unlikely and difficult as such a climb is, there's yet another force working against Dean. He’s forever haunted by treasured memories of Theresa Wayman, his long-estranged teenage soul-mate.
Theresa! Theresa! Theresa! She just won't go away!
Dean's loving recollections of Theresa continually taint his twenty-year marriage to Maddy Frances--a woman so giving (and forgiving) she should be canonized a living saint. But it’s Theresa, not his wife, who Dean feels standing at his side every time he loses a job. She’s alongside him when he actually goes postal on one. She shares his fury and desperation as he constantly tries to fight back the inevitable corporate takeover of his family. She's center-stage in Dean's mind and far too deep in his heart the day Maddy Frances finds him unconscious at a botched suicide attempt--a time-faded photograph of Theresa clenched in his hands.
In spite of it all, Maddy’s love never wavers. And eventually, thanks to her undying allegiance, Dean’s ship finally comes to port. He gets a novel published, and defying all odds, the book commandeers every bestseller list in the country. But just when it seems their problems--financial and otherwise--may at long last be over, a new cloud forms over their happiness. This one comes out of Dean’s past, and it looks ominous.
