ROAD THROUGH HEAVEN by Ricky J Martinez

£5.00

As rock-throwers and prejudice tongues corrupt the streets, Jesus, an orphan bereaved of his cruel parents, finds sanctuary in a countryside hovel where his poetic heart quenches misunderstandings between a married couple, Dolores and Victor. Subtle frictions erupt of this unconventional lovers triangle, but nothing will prepare Jesus to handle the destructive path of a wrathful curse Dolores keeps from both men and the fate it resigns him to.

ROAD THROUGH HEAVEN FORMS A PART OF IN GOD’S LAND: AN ISLAND TRILOGY
