From the Author:

This poem captures the essence of "Holly Heights."

Opposite Attraction
By Patricia Ruth 

Faith can be fleeting, Desires come and go
            A frozen heart re-heating, Withered strength can grow
 
Forward movement stalls, The wandering mind rests
            Love rises and falls, The downward spiral crests

Looking inside will out, The obvious is concealed
            A quiet voice shouts, Secret desires are revealed

To let go is to get, Peaceful feelings churn
            Divided goals are met, Lost objects are returned

 Cold hands seek warmth, Small kindnesses are vast
            Heaven lives on earth, Fleeting gifts can last

From the Back Cover:

The American Dream may have taken a hit, but it's still alive and well in Holly Heights.  You'll have a front row seat as we peek behind the stately façade of this fictional community where sexual perversion, infidelity, drug use, and deception play out amid the luxury of fabulous wealth.  

Mark's dream of moving into his trophy house and living the life he deserves is about to come true.  It's been two grueling years since he and Nancy moved back with his over-bearing parents. Unfortunately, Mark's mysterious double-life begins to unravel at the worst possible moment.

Margie's obsessive drive to leave her cramped Queens apartment comes at a high price.  Her insatiable longing to live beyond their means only feeds Bill's already heightened fears and insecurities.  Why doesn't she see the toll it's taking on their marriage?  

Everyone was surprised when vain Kat and her spoiled husband Woody announced they were moving their society lifestyle to the suburbs.  Despite their wealth and connections things just didn't work out as planned for these master manipulators.  Oh, the secrets that are exposed!

Then there's Ira, Holly Heights' charmed builder, eligible bachelor and reformed "sinner," finally discovering the love of his life - where he least expected.  

These Holly Heights friends end up learning the hard way that self-indulgence is not without consequences.  In the end, the high-born are brought low, once proud families are broken apart, and new bonds of love and fidelity are formed.  

Welcome to the neighborhood, you'll feel right at home because - 
 Holly Heights is everywhere!
