I will make three, free copies of my latest novel, Sable Shadow and The Presence, available to readers who agree to post a review of 100 words or more on this blog. Please leave me your name and address. First come, first served!
The synopsis of Sable Shadow and The Presence is as follows: This is a fictional autobiographical novel of Henry Lawson, who at a young age hears strange voices which, at first, he does not recognise. He attributes one voice to ‘Sable Shadow’, a confidant of the devil, and the other to The Presence, a representative of God.
In high school, Henry is introduced to the writings of Jean-Paul Sartre, and he begins to see life in existential terms, while not infringing on his rudimentary Christian beliefs.
Upon Henry’s entry into the world of business, he receives guidance from Sable Shadow; this advances him to a high corporate level. With his career nearly at its peak, he suffers a series of devastating tragedies. He feels tormented and attempts suicide. With the help of his wife, and a psychiatrist with whom he engages in existential dialogue, he constructs a successful, new Identity.
The novel follows Henry’s growing and selective acceptance of existentialism, and his efforts to make it a personal guide to living rather than a series of abstractions.
The novel has philosophical, psychological and theological dimensions, but it is firmly set in the every-day world of good and evil, triumph and tragedy.
I will extend this same offer to my other four novels: Fishing in Foreign Seas, Sin and Contrition, Efraim’s Eye, and The Iranian Scorpion. Information about these novels can be found at my website: www.williampeace.net.
Each reader will be limited to one book until a review on the previous book is posted.
