Today I'm happy to welcome Sheila Hendrix, author of The Betrayal, to my blog! She's here to share some thoughts about unconditional love, one of the big topics in her book. I had the pleasure of reviewing her book earlier this week. Now I'll give the floor to her!
Thinking about what I wanted to write this post about, I decided on a topic that is close to my heart. I love to read book about brothers, family, lovers, ect. In Romantic Suspense the hero will always do whatever he has to do to protect his woman. I also like books where brothers love each other so much, they are willing to do anything for the other, even give their life as a sacrifice for each other. Too many times in life I find out that people no longer care about each other. Everyone it seems is out for number one and they just leave everyone else behind. I feel as if the world would be a better place if people cared about each other. How nice would it be for someone, when you or someone you love is threatened, to stand up for you and say to the enemy, "If you want to get through them, you have to go through me." Even the bible says, "Happy is the man who lays down his life for his friends." How many of us would lay down our lives for the other? When did we get so single minded and afraid? In the old days, people fought for each other and they were honarable who did. They were considered hero's.
That's what I try to show in my book, The Betrayal. Zack and Matt are brothers who love each other unconditionally and would do anything for each other even die. I think if we all would take a lesson from them and act on it, the world we live in would not be such a scary place.
