Overview

Soul Purpose is a gripping novel that grabs you by the soul from the first chapter, then refuses to let you go.

Billy: Found in a freezing trashcan the day of his birth with the umbilical cord still attached. His face crushed and severely burned, he was rushed to the hospital and barely survived. Billy grew up in an orphanage taking the brunt of teasing from the other kids. As an adult he works in a rundown bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans in exchange for a mattress in a storage room and $75 a week. He has an extremely bad attitude and at only 25 he has already given up on life.

Melissa: Born Melissa Elisabeth Tibedeaoux, and ordained to rule over a vast family fortune, she is beautiful, and educated. She was supposed to have everything. Life for her was meant to be a paradise, except she was born blind. At 22, Melissa finds her parents dead and herself married to an abusive, evil man whose only goal is to steal her money. He holds her hostage at home and beats her in an attempt to keep her down, until he can find a way to get the riches. He finally develops a plan, but in the course of transporting Melissa, Billy rescues her.

Now Billy must fight against the clock to save Melissa's life, and redeem his own. Apart, neither of them have anything, but together they can have it all.

    Soul Purpose

    This book kept me up all night. I simply could not put it down until I finished it. I tried, but only lay in bed wondering what would happen next. It left me wanting more. I hope there¿s a sequel.

    A Fairy Tale with modern grit.

    This is a very unusual style. I found it to be like Disney meets Quentin Tarantino. Really moving and fast paced. Hard to put down. Romantic, gritty, real life heroes and bad guys. I sincerely look forward to his next book.

    Soul Purpose

    This is an incredible read. Fast paced and moving. The characters felt like my friends, and I was sad when is was over. Beauty and the Beast - it doesn¿t get any better than this. I can¿t wait for his next book.

    Being in the book business I had a chance to read an advanced copy of this novel. I LOVED IT!!!! The story opens with a bang and doesn¿t let you catch your breath. It¿s one of those books that you seem to lose yourself in. A milestone, this one is sure to go down as a classic. It truly has something for everyone; no small feat, read it-you¿ll love it!!! I can¿t wait for the movie.
