Getting a new marketing push, “A Second Lease of Life” (published by Trafford Publishing) is Madeleine Luthi’s novel about a young woman who brings two distant brothers together.
Phillip is traveling around Australia while playing in a band when he meets Kid and instantly falls in love, so much so, that he takes her back with him to America and marries her shortly after. Little did he know that Kid and her spirit, courage, determination and indestructible capacity for love would become the driving force he needed to start reconsidering a decision he made in his youth – a decision to distance himself from his brother David.
David’s life has not been going too well. He was sent to war and upon his return became a fugitive. After years of dodging the police, he is captured. When he is released, he finds his brother and sister-in-law waiting for him with open arms.
As the story progresses, readers will witness these three characters start down a path of healing – a path of healing that will captivate readers until the final page.
An excerpt from “A Second Lease on Life”:
“It’s about the circumstances of his death.” James said bravely. “Do you know... did anyone tell you?”
“Tell us what, James?”
“David’s death... seen as heart failure. I’m not sure how to say this ... please bear with me. Kid, on David’s birthday you came up with this weird and wonderful story about some tribes in remote Pacific Islands. I’m not saying that David knew about this but... we all heard about the depth of David’s meditation, remember? Maybe he was in some way able to control the forces of life and death.
