by Blake Hughes
Weaving hypnotic tales of period romance in which Love is the central character, author Blake Hughes muses on the vagaries of the human heart in search of the perfect relationship.
Viewing a time gone by through a soft focus, Mr. Hughes deftly entangles his all-too-human protagonists in webs of unrequited love, misunderstood passion and misguided romantic intentions, alternately peeping into the hearts and souls of men and women alike. Ranging from pre-World War I New York City to contemporary Charleston, South Carolina, we find ourselves cheering on the erstwhile suitors as they stumble, bumble, and feel their way through the highs and lows of fate’s influence on their lives and loves.
Joined together by the common theme of the questing heart, Loves and Consequences offers a new perspective on the amusing and tragic in human emotion.
