“Love, like life, never dies. It merely shifts.” Barbara Boyer
New England raised San Diego author Barbara Boyer takes readers through a suspense-filled journey of love and conflict with her inspirational fiction novel, Courage of Fear (Release Dec. 2008) where critics commonly refer to her writing as the female Nicholas Sparks. Boyer’s Courage of Fear draws on her many years of her own person spiritual quest to share philosophies that prove to inspire and enlighten while entertaining and enthusing readers forward from start to finish—leaving them wanting more.
“Angela Hearly-Peterson had it all—a beautiful home, adoring husband, a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, even a Pulitzer for her bestselling inspirational memoir Wrestling With the Demons. Little does Angela know it’s all about to come crumbling down. Her husband Jackson00the beloved ‘moon to her sea’—has a secret gambling problem and has lost their entire fortune. In debt to Las Vegas casinos, he commits an almost unspeakable act that will send Angela into a downward spiral. She flees the West Coast for her family compound on Nantucket, where she plans to end the miserable charade that her life has become. The island remains home to people who still love Angela and remember the little girl she used to be before fame and fortune struck. One man in particular has been waiting for her return. Leo, her unrequited high school boyfriend, still holds a torch or Angela and believes that they will end up together. Slowly, the motley group of islanders bands together to coax Angela back from the edge.” —Kirkus Discoveries
