Nov. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- In an interwoven tale of the most unlikely loves and relationships forged by fire, Debra Anastasia takes readers into the darkest corners of human existence, only to show them the radiant power of pure, selfless adoration and true sacrifice. Complicated families and confused souls find their way to light in Poughkeepsie, which manages to be racy, profane, funny, and reverent all at once. You can join Blake and Livia starting November 22, available at these online retailers: Omnific Publishing, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or ask for it at your local booksellers.

SYNOPSIS:  He counts her smiles every day and every night at the train station. Morning and evening, a beautiful commuter acknowledges him, just like he’s anyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others. He’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Tracing the path of her daily trek to the city, Livia McHugh is convinced she’s the same. The same as a million other girls. Nothing special—certainly no one to be cherished. She continues on her way, smiling politely at everyone, never imagining that some people rely on her simple human gesture to jumpstart their day.

Then comes the moment when Livia must do more than smile. She steps into the fray to defend the homeless man, never expecting his voice to trickle so thrillingly down her spine.  After the danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something within each of them as it evolves into love.

It seems simple, and it’s certainly exciting, but their bond must soon prove its strength. Entanglements from the past will prove a challenge to both their love and their lives.

Blake’s heart beats for Livia’s, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?
