Overview

This book is an ad-hoc English and Spanish compilation of romantic prose written without the benefit of expensive language software. Yet, it is the one of the most beautiful collection of prose from a poor and unknown true master of the art; who has the Spanish blood of romanticism flowing through him. The book is an assortment of poems that reflect not only on his own life experiences but, some relate to other distinct subjects; all neatly tucked into a most magnificent work of art long to be enjoyed by many generations to come. The main topic of this book is heartbreak and loss and the realization that there is light at the end of the tunnel of torment and pain. The poems read at times like love letters and at other times like endlessly and beautifully written feelings straight from the heart about a loved one. While still others ask the question of why did it end and why can’t it be again? One of these pieces of prose is worth the price of the book and so here lies a treasure for the heart to experience, for a long time to come. You will proudly cherish, share and keep this book in a special place and or even in that library of romanticist prose. Written mostly in the long hand version which does not easily lend itself to the rhyming versions we are so used to seeing from other romanticist poetry; the message of heartbreak and loss rings just as clearly as in all the rest. There is a flow in these pieces of prose that touch on that part of the heart in love that wants to be heard.

Meet the Author

John R. Hernandez studied for four years at Rutgers University in New Jersey as a communications major where he began to fine tune the European Spaniard romanticist and Caribbean heritage of his earlier ancestors. The son of a broken marriage, he walked through life with a deep gash in his heart that later came to be relived in his own life experiences and relationships. If you take anything from this man and this book it should be that he arose above all the failures and negative spears that life threw at him and so can you. And this book is exactly the thing one needs to get a real life view at how to express oneself in a lighter more positive way through the use of prose; instead of lashing out at the world whenever we are pushed against the walls of indifference and or cast down and rejected. This book is not just only his special collection of prose but, it also reveals to us that there is always hope if you believe in yourself and have the faith to rise above the worst that life can throw at us. Sometimes, life can get the best of us when bad things happen and while some decide to withdraw or even to rebel; still others choose to shine. To bring to light that inner masterpiece hidden and waiting for the light of a new dawn to help enlighten us, with their unique wisdom. John R Hernandez, Jr. chose to tell the world what is in his heart, not something easily revealed. Yet, for this master of romantic prose it came easy to unravel the confining weeds that often tear us apart and refuse to let us breathe and rise from the ashes of our own individual failures. The book is a poetic expression taken from a lifetime of experiences, relationships and heartbreaks, which, have helped to spark the roots that have come to be known as In the Birth of a New Dawn. The secret to this title is about going from the eve of heartbreak and loss -which many of us eventually must face if we are human- to facing the blinding light of reality and a new day. Its one man’s fearless English and Spanish compilation of prose that will help others close the door to the storms that rage on in the past. It is about learning to take the first steps to turning the page towards the next chapter of life, courageously. New dawn is about realizing that only you can change tomorrow.

    Riveting prose, a gaze into a master poet's heart.

    Masterfully written, eye opening narratives, jaw dropping intense romantic depths; the likes of which few of today's poets seem to come close to. This book takes you on this pleasant romantic journey to the edge, to where heartbreak meets eternal bliss, softly, quietly and often regretfully painful and uniquely sensual. In the midst of a storm of passion and torment the likes of which you want to explore over and over again; you just don't want to put this one down, until you meet the eyes of dawn over and over again. You'll be left wishing, no, praying for more and thinking this `is just how I feel.
    One of the best master romantic poets of the 21st century, he leaves nothing out in this compilation of love prose; a must read for die hard romantic prose aficionados; you won't want to put it down; it's like everything that's happened to you..
    Are you or have you ever been in love? Have you ever wanted to write some of the most beautiful pieces of prose to a loved one but, somehow the words were hard to compile. Well then, here is a master poet's book to help kick start you inner romantic juices. This book of prose is not like your ordinary novel, but if you wanted to compare it to one on your best read list then I'd say every piece of prose in this book reads like a chapter unto itself. Because no matter how large or small it is, it packs a strong punch as it reveals the inner depths of love and loss. This book also has some pieces in Spanish, a treat some might miss -at first glance- and a well appreciated caveat for bilingual readers to B&N's Nook reader circles. There is also a nice piece of prose dedicated to the great state of Georgia here I found odd but, a welcome delight as well as one or two others stuffed here and there between the pages. This book reads like a book of love letters till you begin to figure out that each piece has its own unique place in time not always related to the previous one or the one after it. Yet, there is an affinity and similarity between some of the pieces. I could feel my blood pressure rising as I tried to swallow it all in one sitting (not highly recommended). You will find many pieces in this book closely relate in an indirect way -of course- to similar incidents in your life. I found the tic to be a challenge but, once I got passed that to the inner workings behind that wall, I couldn't stop; I was on overdrive from there on. I can't wait to read his next work.
