A Year Without April

A Year Without April

by Marcus Green




Finally, the novel about everything you wished they would have told you about love but somehow neglected to mention, until now! Venture with Miles Graham, a once easy going playboy, whose life is forever altered after his surreal romance with the enigmatic April Nesbitt ends in devastating heartbreak. He embarks on a journey that's relatable to anyone who's ever enjoyed love beyond belief only to find they're unable to believe that it's over! This is the tale for anyone who has ever heard (or recited) the words "We need to talk," followed by, "you're a great guy (or girl) but...", or had a hole in their heart the size of the Caspian Sea that no words of wisdom could fill. This novel is for every one of us who has "been there before" in a one sided fight where you're heart has had it's a--kicked. It's the layperson's and male response to books such as "Eat, Pray, Love", as most people don't possess the luxury of jet setting to exotic lands or consuming gourmet foods post a devastating breakup. In contrast they have the reality of the local bar to drown their sorrows at, friends who eventually grow exhausted from hearing for what seems like the millionth time about an ex they can't get over, and work they have to strain through the next day even as their life resembles the perfect picture of misery. It is packed with the hilarity, honesty, and lessons we all receive on the voyage of mending a broken heart once love has cast us adrift and been relegated to the past tense in our lives. Ultimately revealing powerfully what we all need to know at some time or another, that it hasn't been too long, that your situation isn't unprecedented, and that you aren't weak or abnormal. You simply have the same exact problem as everyone else, you're human!
