Author Kathi Macias returns to the blogosphere in October 2009 with Pump Up Your Book Promotion Public Relations. During Kathi’s second virtual book tour she’ll talk about her contemporary novel, My Son, John.
Murder. Could there be a more chilling word? Could it be any more horrible than to have a loved one killed, brutally and heartlessly, without obvious reason or motive? When Liz Peterson’s elderly mother is found viciously beaten to death in her home, Liz and her husband, Charles, along with their grown son, John, and teenage daughter, Sarah, are horrified beyond words. Their previously predictable, respectable lives seem to have vanished without a trace, as they struggle to make sense of a senseless act.
And then a second blow—more devastating, if possible, than the first—rocks them to their core. John is arrested for his grandmother’s murder. As what’s left of the Peterson family begins to crumble under the weight of loss and accusation, the Petersons’ longstanding Christian faith is put to the test in a way they could never have imagined, and unconditional love is stretched to its limits. Will family ties and relationships withstand such a crushing blow, or will evil succeed in dividing and conquering this once close and inseparable family?
Praise for My Son, John:
“‘My Son, John’ is a compelling story that offers hope when hope is humanly impossible to find, and reminds us how to love unconditionally—“no matter what.” A beautiful story of redemption and forgiveness written by a gifted author.” -- Diane Moody (Kingston Springs, TN)
“…one of the strongest examples of unconditional love, forgiveness, grace and mercy I've come across in some time.” -- Peg Phifer (Las Vegas, NV)
