October 2014 Is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October 2014 Is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence has generated enormous press with the NFL the last few weeks. However domestic violence is not limited to over paid athletes. Domestic violence plagues ordinary people, every single day. I am offering the Kindle version of Mommy's Black Eye FREE from October 1st to October 5th to promote awareness of domestic violence.

Fezariu’s Epiphany by David M. Brown

This is a tale of sadness, sacrifice and misunderstanding.

Fezariu bases his life on incorrect assumptions.  His misery and withdrawn behavior may be a metaphor for life’s misunderstandings.   I found myself wanting to point in the direction of his redemption.   He and his 3 Merelax Mercenaries’ companions discover truths about themselves as the fulfill the duties and obligations thrust upon them.

The settings of a declining metropolis, a prominent brothel, demoralizing battlefields and a loving warm bakery are crafted and described well.  The only complaint I had with the book was the letters that Fezariu sent to Alycea taxed my 20/20 corrected vision to the limits.  I found the font size and the script made the letters very difficult to read.

Jessamine is the saddest character in the book and her self sacrificing behavior is as misguided as it is laudable.   You can almost smell the filth and corruption that permeates Clarendon, a true cesspool of a city.   This is a story of how a boy grows into being a man and accepting his faults and redeeming his failures. 

I recommend it.
