Thou Shalt Eat Dust: A Second chance Love Story
From the Amazon Best Selling author of Ruby Sanders and Jared Anderson comes a 21st Century second chance love story, Thou Shalt Eat Dust.
Elizabeth and Charles Widenhammer -- German and Polish upper middle class -- were married for more than thirty years. They met and fell in love one snowy Chicago night at a friend’s Christmas party. And as they say, the rest is history. That is, until Henry Widenhammer died from Testicular Cancer.
Frank and Julia Davis, African American, had been married for thirty-two years. While Frank vied for election as the second African American to ever hold the position of Mayor of Chicago, Julia kept his world as normal as possible under the glaring white hot light of Chicago politics. But when Julia dies from her five year battle with breast cancer, Frank is left alone in unfamiliar territory.
Both Elizabeth and Frank are drowning in grief and spiraling down into depression after the deaths of their beloved spouses. Elizabeth uses alcohol as a means of coping while Frank copes by spending long hours at work rarely returning to the home he shared with Julia.
But a chance meeting in Phoenix, during a rare dust storm known as a Haboob, sparks, for Elizabeth and Frank, a renewed interest in life, love, and dating.
The only problem with these two middle aged adults being in love is that no one wants them to be in love, at least, not with each other.
Will Elizabeth and Frank have the courage to overcome family, political, and racial prejudices, so that they can have a second chance at love? Or will politics, family, and old secrets win out?
