More About This Book

Overview

When Michael "Traine" Tranier, a low-life drug dealer, dodges the bullets of LA thugs, he runs into the arms of Risa, a beautiful Mexican angel who takes him on a journey just as deadly. "Match to The Heart" is a modern day saga of a man's struggle for redemption and love in a world he never knew existed to a place and time he never left. But the novice angel soon discovers that the journey is as much a challenge for her as it is for him. Risa recognizes in Traine the soul of a noble warrior who, in another incarnation, saved her life and who she married four hundred years ago. Of all her past lives, this is the one love she has never forgotten. The one soul she still desires. Their journey spans centuries and continents, terrifying forests and raging seas as their love takes hold and the secret of human transformation is revealed.
"Though this story be fiction, it is in fact truth of the highest order, for as we walk our path, how do we separate illusion from reality? Is not the journey of the soul to find our truth, the purpose for which we walk the earth? Luber's tale of one man's journey is both powerful and intimate."
(Betty Riley, author "A Veil Too Thin")
"This man's search for his soul is an inspiring adventure. In his awesome journey, we are reminded how far our thoughts, words, deeds and actions are reaching out into the world. Simply stated, this book will give you insight into how beautiful your soul is. Thank you, Ken Luber."
(Ada Marie, author/editor "Miracles at Your Fingertips")
"This novel is a must read for discerning adults of all Faith Persuasion, as well as those of no particular Persuasion. For every word, there is a reason. I was enthralled." (Reverend Marian Whiteman, ICSL Palm Desert, CA)
Ken Luber, writer and teacher, lives with his wife Kathleen in the San Jacinto mountains of Southern California. After years of working in the Los Angeles film and television industry, Ken now focuses on novels and travel.

    Our Parallel Trip to Both Ends of the Rainbow

    Driving nine hundred miles to our 50th college reunion last weekend, we shared the delightful experience of my wife's oral reading of Match to the Heart. I had tried to read "Match" but it was frequently dulled by the presence of two or three glasses of wine and a vague recollection of the story.

    But, this was different. Wow, what a great way to learn, question, understand and relate to the journey of Risa and Traine from the Rainbow Inn to Seattle. Traine faces many challenges in his travels with Risa and we could relate to those experiences transcending time and space. We sincerely hope that "Match" is done as an audio-book to provide a similar opportunity for others.

    Thanks Ken for "Match to the Heart" since it represents a stimulus for personal redemption and an optimistic future as we work through the challenges of our fourth quarter and only wish that we could have had the benefit of your extraordinarily well written tale of redemption at Traine's age.
