John D.Rachel, who is one of my favorite authors, always intellectually stimulating. He can tell a story both sardonically and eloquently. His writing is always authentic, gritty and real. His characters are such that everyone can relate to. “The man who loved too much” by John D. Rachel is an intriguing story of a throw away child named Billy, who despite the dark cloud that hovers over him, he manages to escape a dysfunctional childhood and get himself into college. This is where the underdog Billy blossoms, but true to form, as is the cycle of life. When one does not learn from their past and childhood, one is doomed to be deceived again in adulthood. That is of course until one finds the lesson and the blessing contained therein. That is Billy’s journey. Just when you think he has escaped his dysfunctional childhood environment. Against all odds, he conquers, falls in love, inwardly happy, yet naïve and trusting. He appears to be doomed as he is victimized again and again as if it is all unfinished business or karma. I’m looking forward to the next volume in this trilogy. Eager to read what future challenges and experiences Billy must conquer!
Thank you for another entertaining, good read John D Rachel! Bring on the next one!
