Jessica Anderson was just beginning her new life as a teacher and was looking forward to her up-coming wedding to her former history professor. Their affair was supposed to have a happy ending, but Fate had other plans for them. The entire course of her life was changed by a motorcycle accident that claimed the life of her fiancé. What had appeared to be a clear path became an obscured and murky road, as she fell into despair. Wracked by suicidal thoughts, she struggled to come to terms with her loss, and eventually the recognition that she would have to continue living.
Waiting For Odysseus was inspired by real events and real people. It is a modern mythological love story that parallels the love story between Homer's Odysseus and Penelope. Homer's portrayal of loving and longing for home is a concrete exemplar of what we are all looking for, what we are all trying to achieve in this life. Homer's lovers are like-minded and therefore partnered in the physical and spiritual sense. They are not illusive figures of the mythological past, but meaningful reminders of what we have within our grasp.
From the Publisher: In this debut novel, Janell Ramos has captured the essence of lost love, and the universal quest for belonging. Inspired by Homer's Odyssey and true life, she weaves a passionate tale of a love between two people that transcends time and traditional boundaries. You will not be able to put it down once you begin the journey. You will believe.
