FOLLOW PURPLE HOPE!

“Christ, you look like shit.” Those were my exact words over seven years ago when my dad arrived early on a Sunday morning to help renovate my basement. And he really did look like shit. His face was white as a ghost. “I’m fine,” my dad replied, “just must’ve eaten something funny last night.” If only that had been the problem. [ 826 more words. ]

Book Description

March 29, 2014
Does Heaven await beneath the waves? One man needs to know.

When his dying father whispers a cryptic message to him, he has no choice but to summon his courage and begin the quest of a lifetime. It’s a race against time to realize his father’s wish and fulfill his own destiny; it’s a discovery of the unbreakable bond between father and son. It’s a journey of the heart that unfolds where only the Chosen exist – in the moments between Dusk and Summer.

"A poignant, metaphoric conversation between son and father. A story that will warm your heart."
--Yvonne S. Thornton, M.D., bestselling author of The Ditchdigger's Daughters

The author will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this book to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

This story gets under your skin, but not in the way you'd expect from Joseph A. Pinto. The terror you experience while reading Dusk and Summer is something we all go through sooner or later, the death of a parent, and the gaping hole that's left. This son is sent on a task by his dying father, completing the task helps him not only accept his dad's death, but understand who he was years ago.
Dusk and Summer weaves fact and fiction in such a way, you can't sit the book down.

Unable to leave the world of sorrow and happiness Pinto created I read cover to cover in one sitting. 
 
 
For the entire month, Joe will be posting about Pancreatic Cancer. Visit his website and learn about this horrific disease.
