A to Z: F is for Friendship

Friends make life sweet, and in SAVIOR, both Al Lyons and Ricky his son find that friends not only lighten the load on their paths to freedom and maturity, but also teach them some of the deepest lessons of what it means to be alive.

Ricky escapes the clutches of the US military, and with his girlfriend Lianne he hits the road to find his father. Both of them have some growing up to do, but they watch each other's back until it is no longer possible.

Al finds solace with his fellow prisoners in the underground Santos Muertos compound. Together they plot escape and help keep hope alive. One prisoner in particular becomes Al's confidante and romantic partner, proving that the bonds of friendship can blossom into something greater in the worst of circumstances.

To quote the narrator of a book I wrote called LATITUDES - A Story of Coming Home, speaking of friends, he says "They were all coming from different places and on their way to different destinations. They served as precious holds for each other in the shifting sands."

"Greater love has no-one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13.

SAVIOR will be published April 18th on the Amazon Kindle platform by Harvard Square Editions. Visit the SAVIOR page on the HSE website, and then check back here throughout the A to Z challenge month to learn more about SAVIOR and publication launch details.
