Abandoned by his father as a child, Jack DiLuca cannot see that his self-destructive behavior and one-night stands are preventing him from finding the love and the normal life that he desires. Driven by recurring dreams about his father, he walks away from his first meaningful relationship to settle the score with the man who destroyed his life.
When Jack finds his father in Philadelphia, he discovers that everything is not as it appears. He gets more than he bargained for as family secrets are revealed, and he learns that even he is not who he thought he was.
A chance meeting with Maggie, an old high school flame, rekindles his desire, but she resists his attempts to get too close. After building a bond with her ten-year-old daughter, Jack longs to be part of a family again. But when tragedy strikes, he discovers that Maggie hides a secret that threatens to destroy everything.
A fast-paced, contemporary love story, Broken Angels follows Jack DiLuca on a journey to find happiness and a sense of purpose in the wake of a troubled childhood. Readers will be caught off guard with each new discovery as Jack winds his way along a perilous path of reclamation. If he is to triumph, he must learn to let go of the past and forgive everyone, including himself.
This is the second edition of Broken Angels, published in 2018. The first edition was published by a small publisher in California in 2016. I was thrilled to be published by a real publisher rather than self-publish again. That is, until I had to terminate our agreement for breach of contract.
I dusted the book off, gave it a new cover and ISBN, and put it back out there under my imprint. There were challenges. For example, all the great reviews I'd received on Amazon were attached to the old book. Bummer.
The first edition is out of print, but you may see used copies on Amazon with the old cover design. Rest assured; the story hasn’t changed.
"Great read! Couldn't put it down. Broken Angels is about life, love, relationships, loss, disappointment, joy, growth. Homick does a superb job developing his less than perfect characters into likable people who find love, happiness and purpose in our less than perfect world."
