book cover for Keeping the Family PeaceKeeping the Family Peace

Deprived of his father’s love and approval growing up, a history scholar must convince his aging father to reveal family secrets. The revelations will either tear them apart or allow him to become the man his father was never able to be.

A son searching for answers. A father whose silence is deafening. A family rocked to its very core.

Nick Peace knows more about the Middle Ages than about his own family history. His father Jack, a retired Navy captain, wants to keep the past buried. Nick struggles with his own desire to dig it up. He is certain it holds the secrets to the distance between father and son. Nick’s sisters aren’t much help – they have secrets of their own. The rift between Nick and his father grows wider, but as tragedy strikes the family, and the girls’ secrets come to light, Jack’s defenses begin to crumble.

Join the family Peace as they gather to celebrate – or mourn – life changing events . . . and underlying tensions reveal the secrets that could tear them apart.

A mainstream contemporary family saga, available on Amazon (in print & online versions),  Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords (for other eReaders). You may also find it in trade paperback version on my Amazon CreateSpace store.
