"Life's truest gift is wisdom, and that is the one gift we must give back."
- Luke Winters
Kristen Lamb has an intriguing post:
How Pop Culture Is Devaluing Men & Women (especially the no-longer young)
Older women and men are being devalued and mocked in our culture.
Those with the most available money to spend are not being marketed to.
Books ignore their lives as if life stopped being adventurous after 35!
That is when life just starts getting interesting!
Take Luke Winters:
He has spent his whole life straddling two worlds, Lakota and White, belonging in neither.
He isn't complaining.
He has learned to accept himself whether or not he is accepted by anyone else.
Enter the murky, dangerous world of a Native American Noir thriller
with undercurrents of forbidden love.
A meld of a mature Romeo and Juliet and The Godfather
as seen through the eyes of a disgraced Lakota psychologist back in his home town.
The woman he has loved all his life has become the feared donna of the crime family which controls the state.
She has mastered all her enemies but one -
the disease that is now killing her.
As she fights rival crime bosses sensing her weakness,
can the psychologist save her from herself?
And at what cost to himself?
