Fiction/Romantic Adventure

A tantalizing first novel by Matt Joswick

You ever have that, "Funny Empty Feeling," in the pit of your stomach when something goes wrong. (Bad news, a lost love, etc.) Then you will be able to relate to this novel. The title is just an example of this new author's clever and imaginative writing.

Take a trip down memory lane as life and values were very different in the 1950s. Follow Adam's life as a naive young farm boy. His girl problems start at the tender age of eleven. Then high school... his first kiss... his first heartbreak. On to college where Tiffany comes crashing headlong into his life. Classy, sexy, and, oh yes, rich. What interest can she have in a farm boy who believes in the "Golden Rule," as practiced by his family.

Tiffany has no rules. What Tiffany wants, Tiffany gets. If she cannot get it for herself, then her rich Daddy will get it for her. If that fails, all stops are out. Deceit is a great alternative, especially when she has not lost her interest in other men.

Loving Tiffany is confusing enough, but the overbearing Daddy makes life miserable. Then there is that fateful voyage. Hijacked and a year on an island with strange inhabitants changes his life forever.

His world is turned upside down when he finds the true meaning of love. Then, just when life begins to make sense to him again, everything he loves in the world is lost once more.

This is a story of confusion between passionate sex, forbidden love and true love. Follow trusting Adam through his life as it twists and turns, where happiness, despair and even death are all visitors to his disconcerted world.

If you enjoy long verbal scenic descriptions, this is not the novel for you. The author quickly sets a scene then lets your own imagination fill in the blanks. Rather than long descriptive passages, which you might speed through, his novel is plot driven. You will read every word to make sure you do not miss the suspense of what is coming next.

Yes, you had better plan on scheduling some quiet time... then cuddle up and enjoy a novel that is quite different. This new author has written a real page-turner.
