“Set in Arizona during a political campaign, a petulant, fragile, tormented, and sometimes strong protagonist emerges. She will evoke contradictory emotions, encouraging the reader to keep turning the pages. Through detail and imagery, the author paints a vivid picture of the protagonist’s home, office, streets, buildings, memories, and fantasies. Even minor characters come alive. C. Marie Schrant’s first novel deserves attention.” —Susan Ball, B.ED., M.ED.

“C. Marie Schrant weaves an intricate story about unrequited love and the demons this love evokes. When Emma is driven by a forceful entity to love a man she doesn’t want to love, she must fight the internal battle all the way through to the end. It begs the question of what is real love and how far one must go to experience it.” —Stephanie Elliot, author

Emma is fifty-seven years old. Out of shape. Overweight. And at the lowest point in her life she has ever been. She has absolutely no interest in the man who is fifteen years her junior, married to another woman who is pregnant with his child. She’s never dated him, never touched him in an inappropriate way, never entertained the idea of being in a relationship of any kind with the man. As a matter of fact, she often finds him dull and boring, yet she falls deeply in love with him, so deep, it takes the meaning of the word to a whole new dimension.

Please tell me. How in God’s name does something like this happen?

The answer lies in a journey of inexplicable horror, and an unsettling discovery that forever changes Emma.

What this author said about working with us...

After going through the ratings of several self-publishing companies, I chose a few to take a deeper look at. I scoured their websites. Searched the Internet for additional reviews. Gave the companies a call. At the end of the day, I chose Luminare Press to publish my work. Reviews were good, and I liked how they communicated with me. Turns out I made a great decision. I can't say enough about how rewarding it was to work with the staff of Luminare Press. I will use Luminare Press again when I publish The Littlest Christmas Tree. C. Marie Schrant
