9781602829886: Stronger Than This

Charlene’s soul mate, Samantha, has been killed in a car accident. Daniel’s partner, Martin, has been murdered in a robbery gone wrong. Seeking comfort, Charlene and Daniel attend a support group where they meet for the first time. Emotionally devastated and discarded by their loved ones’ conservative families, Charlene and Daniel feel an immediate connection. Rather than reveal their pain to a room full of strangers, they decide to see each other through their shared anguish. As a beautiful friendship emerges from grief, slivers of new hope are found.

Review:

"...a very cleverly constructed piece of writing...The author has a great command of the language, making the mundane sound poetic. This was a touching and absorbing read...Five stars."
Books Direct

"This is a beautifully written look at a very serious issue that can be faced by any one of us."
Reviews by Amos Lassen

"These are real-life issues presented in a fictional novel that beg for compassion and recognition of same-sex relationships....This novel tugged at my heart strings and made me question what I would do if this happened to me... I highly recommend this book to readers of all genres...Five stars."
Lipstick Lesbian Reviews

"Told through a series of letters, Stronger Than This is a story that will stir your heartstrings in more ways than one. [Barnes] has penned a tale that's thought-provoking...Bittersweet, you're going to want to have a box of tissues ready. I definitely recommend Stronger Than This."
Lissette E. Manning, Book Reviewer

"David-Matthew Barnes has done one hell of a job with this book...a heart wrenching, emotional tear jerker...Five stars."
