Can a person’s life change in just one day? How about seven?
This is the story of seven pivotal days in Evan Donaldson’s life. Evan was a teenage street hustler when Father Valentin talked him into coming to Saint Bartholomew’s Academy. In that one day, Evan’s entire life changed. That’s the day he met his roommate, Clay Mueller, and the day Evan began to live. But Evan’s life would change again and again, from abuse to first love, to separation and heartbreak, and eventually to starting his own family. Through it all, whenever a door closed for Evan, a window opened, and the window was Clay.
From the first day of finding faith and connecting with Clay through their relationship’s twists and turns, this is a glimpse into seven decisive days and the critical, amazing way a single moment can change destiny.
Seven Days begins with Evan struggling in the life his world had become since his parents had died in an auto accident. He’s only a young teen living on the streets, dealing with taking johns so he has enough money to no starve or freeze to death.
Enter Father Valentin from St. Bartholomew’s Academy for Boys. Evan’s view of reality is so skewed that he almost doesn’t accept the help offered, automatically assuming some kind of horrible cost for the supposed help. Thankfully he takes a chance and that’s when Evan’s life really begins. But, even salvation isn’t easy as Evan finds out.
Seven Days is the story of Evan’s life, told in the events of seven days, seven days that changed a young life from a throwaway trick to a father and lover. A man any would be proud to know. Between abuse, ecstasy, love, loss, and hope you travel along for a touching ride.
Seven Days is a wonderful story and I highly recommend it to anyone that loves a story of unconditional love and triumph. I have loved Andrew Grey’s work since the first I got my grubby paws on, and he’s again given us a love story worth going right out and buying.
*Note: Andrew has a new Seven Days story called Unconditional Love coming out in July or August 2012! Can’t Wait!!!
Andrew grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world. He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and works in information systems for a large corporation.
Andrew’s hobbies include collecting antiques, gardening, and leaving his dirty dishes anywhere but in the sink (particularly when writing) He considers himself blessed with an accepting family, fantastic friends, and the world’s most supportive and loving partner. Andrew currently lives in beautiful, historic Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
