A Timely Story of the Courage to Change

Some protest in violence. One man stands in silence.

When writer Gerald Sanpatri loses everything he holds dear, he has a choice to make. His anger leads him to the crowded Presidential Square, full of mob mentality and wrath towards the brutal dictator Antoine. As Gerald takes part in the demonstration for freedom, he allows his angst to bubble close to the brink of desperation, and he sees the soldiers come forth out of the gates, unleashing a torrent of pain and violence on the seething crowd.

Gerald cowers. He sees a young teen fall dead at his feet. Fear grips him, and he flees for his life into the desperate seat of the rebellion.

He comes to believe that violence cannot be the answer, and that a soul as broken as himself cannot cause a revolution. He can’t right all the wrongs. But he can remove the garbage dump from underneath his neighbor’s house. He can write stories of courage and goodness.

So one day, he returns to the Presidential Square where he stands on his sore feet with a smile on his face and a dream in his pocket. And he waits for the revolution to come.

A story of courage. A story of hope. A story of achieving the unthinkable. Experience the amazing story of Gerald Sanpatri, the man who decided to pen “A Love Story for a Nation.”

Grab it on Amazon!

I’ll put two different blurbs below to give you a taste of what it’s about. But for 99 cents, you can’t go wrong if you love to read.

Blurb 1: You may burn an author’s books. You may strip his life of everyone he loves. But the writer remains. And soon enough, a new story will emerge where desolation once exists. 

“A Love Story for a Nation” chronicles the explosive and heart-warming journey of former writer Gerald Sanpatri, living a marginalized existence under a brutal dictatorship. After losing everything he once loved, he takes up his pen one last time, and dares to think the unimaginable. Part love story, part fantasy, “A Love Story for a Nation” is a modern day tall-tale with a timeless message of courage.

Blurb 2: As nightly raids burn the capital city, the mundane existence of Gerald Sanpatri takes a dramatic shift when Rosia walks into his life bringing laughter and unexpected love. She inspires the ex-writer to once again take up his pen and write the impossible: a love story for an entire nation. A Love Story for a Nation chronicles the explosive and heart-warming journey of one country’s brush with history through the eyes of a courageous man who dared to stand up, smile, and think the unimaginable.
