Matthew Ezra Shepherd is none of those things. Sarah, raised in Connecticut, is the oldest child in a prominent family. Matt, raised in Mississippi, is the youngest child in a farming family.

Sarah is a winner in life's lottery and has a home in Malibu. Matt, a former Marine, is putting the pieces of his life back together and would be homeless except for a 160 year old farmhouse that has no running water. Sarah is driven, focused, difficult, and intimidating.

Matt is friendly and kind and smiles easily. Sarah is full of herself. Matt is full of mischief.

They meet under false pretenses in New Orleans, the city built on false pretenses. She sees him only as the object of a wager; he sees her as an object to be avoided—and yet. What happens when love is uninvited, inconvenient, and demanding?

When it keeps you up at night and distracts you during the day. When it counsels unreason, folly, and ruin. When it can breach any locked door, scale any high wall, or whisper above any noise.

Fortunately, when it happens to someone else, it can be very funny. The story is told primarily through dialogue which is presented in the style of a play. Descriptions are rarely used to explain how something is said.

That is left to the imagination of the reader. Samples of the thoughtful and compelling dialogue are as follows: "Are you drunk?" "How naked were you?" "Are you gay?" "The Piggly Wiggly is a real place?" "Have the puppy put to sleep". "Wiggle your toes".

"I'm bein' taken to Connecticut by the Whore of Babylon". "I hate him so much... Most of all, I hate his dog".

"Okay, there is a God. Big deal!" "It's a mule!" The story includes a Southern, gothic ghost story; an epic poem; a suggested playlist of thirty-five songs; and three recipes: Ruth's chocolate pie, Matt's buttermilk biscuits, and Lester's pound cake. The playlist gives the reader insight into the story and a head start on the soundtrack prior to the release of the movie.

Seventy-five percent (75%) of the royalties from the sale of each book will go to But God Ministries and/or the Haiti Goat Project for the purchase of goats for the people of Haiti. Buy a book and help buy a goat. Buy one or be one.

"Please buy this man's book. It is a good book". Pastor Mathurin Merystal, Thoman, Haiti.
