Clash of Souls
Florida Authors and Publishers Association (FAPA), President’s Book Award Winner
As we glimpse through the keyhole of this well-bred family, we find the Morrises self-destructing in a way that is civil but odd.
With his James Dean look, Van Morris can charm anyone – anyone but his adoptive mother, that is, who knows what’s underneath that charm.
At the helm of this electrifying clash of souls is an aging but calculating Agnes Flower, matriarch of the family’s citrus empire. Bent on controlling this dynasty is her grandson Van. Hand-picked as her heir, Van curries Anges’ favor at all costs.
Dazed by his father’s untimely death, Van faces a disturbing change of fortune. Clamoring for a say is his newly widowed mother Liz. Every bit the victim, she strives to gain Van’s love and respect while he struggles harder to repel her.
With three strong wills grappling for position, each character achieves something at the expense of the other.
Clash of Souls is rich in originality. Relentlessly paced, unsuspecting twists lurk behind each character’s motives. It is a powerfully woven tale that stretches tension to its limit.
