Overview

Does love as we once knew it still exist? In our age of Twitter, Match.com. texting, sexting, iPhones and Facebook, can two adults – he a West Coast book anthologist, she a Vermont maple sugar farmer – fall in love the old-fashioned way, through meeting, attraction, lust, adversity, resolution? No, says Jove, God of Gods. Yes, says his son, the God of Love, whose career depends on it. Jove allows him only one intervention to effectuate the passionate, iffy romance between Evan Cameron and Eve Golyakovsky, whose life experiences make them wary of giving themselves to one another, and he blows it. Because of an ice storm that threatens to destroy Eve’s maple trees, and Evan’s ex-girlfriend’s illness that compels him to take her in, their love for each other is about to implode. The God of Love is now powerless to intercede. But the soul of a man and the heart of a woman are stronger even than the will of the Gods, and the result is a love story for this day and for time immemorial. "Soulful and sexy. I loved it." Joanna Gleason, actress. Into the Woods, Sons of the Profit, innumerable movies, TV shows
"A grown-up, witty look at love. A terrific read." -- Amanda Silver, co-writer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes
"Wonderful writing, wonderful characters, wondereful story. If you've ever been in love, don't miss it!" -- Dav1d Lender, e-book bestselling author of Trojan Horse and Vaccine Nation
"As fast-paced as a good thriller -- and as riveting." David Morrell, bestselling author of First Blood (Rambo), The Brotherhood of the Rose, etc.
"Proof that lovers can dance at any age! I've been longing for an adult romance. Here it is." Linda Gottlieb, Producer, Dirty Dancing "A Godsend gives us an imaginative, multi-layered perspective on the intricacies of the human heart. It is filled with wisdom as the reader lives with Evan; feeling with him and staying fully engaged until the last line."
Trisha Meili, author, I Am The Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility
