About the Book
Our story opens in February 2006 with Andrew, an artist from Atlanta, coming to the house on the SW coast of Mexico that he and his partner had built. Andrew is mourning the death of his partner, Jacob, in May 2005. Soon after arriving, a great storm occurs. The next day, Andrew finds a man washed up on the beach and helps him to his house, so he has time to recover and rest. His name is Armando. They spend time sharing their life stories and a closeness begins to build between them. But for Armando, there is a problem. He realizes something extraordinary has happened to him but he has great difficulty and reluctance to explain it to Andrew. It weighs heavily on his mind. Then, an event occurs that changes both of their lives forever.
About the Author
This is my seventh novel in print. My others are: The Old Lighthouse, The 2, Two Portraits in Oil, Muraroot, The Stranger from the Sea and The Seashell. I have six more completed but they need some polish to get them ready. If you like my stories, be on the lookout down the road for the next ones. I’m contemplating publishing my short stories, too. I have no regrets moving to Mexico for my retirement. My dollar goes miles here. The people are amazingly friendly, helpful and kind.
