A Love Story for a Nation by Mark W. Sasse

Gerald Sanpatri an ex-writer is encouraged by his loving wife Rosia to write again. Although a war is going on she wants him to write a love story for an entire nation.

We watch one man face many obstacles, love, loss, danger and (shocking) secrets are revealed. I really liked Gerald, a humble proud man, struggling within himself to do what he feels is right for himself, and his country.

A well written story of love, loss and courage. The story flows at an even pace, with a great blend or drama, secrets, decision, and surprises. The characters are well developed, the plot is original and intense.

A definite, heart-felt page turner. I was hooked from the first page, this story will stay with me for a long time. I highly recommend A Love Story for a Nation to readers of all genres. ( )

A Love Story for a Nation is a great novel about friendships, courage, refound love, and grief. Discover the connections between Gerald and his friends, the audience asking questions to this lonely man standing, and the non-violent power that Sanpatri shows towards soldiers. We are the change, and could sparkle a revolution today. ( )
