When she meets Apollo and his charming daughter, Candace quickly becomes attached to them.
The characters in A Tale of Hezekiah and Hepzibah by Terry Lopez face complex problems. Lopez takes readers on both a spiritual and natural journey of creative characters whose lives mirror those of the average human today. Filled with twists and turns, bumps and bruises, mishaps and missteps, this biblically based innovative piece proves that a life without struggle, strain or stress simply does not exist.
Life is never scripted. It’s often a series of making small or large adjustments to things that happen which are usually out of our control. But when you’re fighting the urge to be with someone you love—despite it not being the right person, the right time or the right circumstances—life can become a bit more tumultuous. In this literary roller coaster ride, readers will be challenged to believe in love again, search for soul mates again—even when it doesn’t have the cliché “happily ever after” ending one may desire. Although people may fall or fail, this written masterpiece serves as a reminder that humans are versatile and, often, always recover. After all, could it be that the very things we think are causing a slow death could be God’s way of life preservation?
