Dr. Drew Coleman's seemingly charmed life is shattered by devastating news, causing him to go on a ten-year transcontinental journey of self-discovery. He explores the nature of God and Man, the divine inspiration for many of New York's landmarks and artistic treasures, and the relationship between the found and the lost souls passing on the street.

In time, he discovers and explains the scientific basis for the meaning of life, and he is finally found... or finds himself.

"If you are looking for a great read with a little something extra, search no further; Love, Loss, and Lagniappe is the novel for you." ~ Feathered Quill Book Reviews
