Know your drug

The Macabre Author

One of my promises is not to constantly “sell” you my books on my blog. I like to spotlight other authors, and I have a few queued up to tell you all about, but I like to be about variety. So this week, I bring you non-fiction.

8/10two-by-two Stars

This is not at all a typical Nicholas Sparks novel.  Instead of falling in love, this book is centered around a man who loses it all.  Piece by piece, Russ loses all that he thought he wanted in life and in the process finds a relationship with his preschool age daughter more rewarding than he could have ever thought possible.  Russ struggles to let go of the life he wanted and focuses on the path, however difficult, that has been placed in front of him.
