An Uncommon Folk Rhapsody by C.J. Heigelmann

indie ebook cover


A STORY OF LOVE AND SURVIVAL AMIDST AN ERA OF SUFFERING AND HATE.

Shay is an orphan. A young Asian boy with no link to his past – except for a mysterious jade amulet – and no idea what fate has in store for his future. Not until an American merchant captain raises him to be a man. A valiant Union Army scout during the height of the American Civil War.

Across the oceans, a young girl is ripped from her homeland and tossed aboard a ship set sail for America. She is sold to an Alabama plantation like livestock; her name, her identity, and her life stripped from her. Now, she is considered nothing more than a slave.

When their two paths cross ten years later, they immediately intertwine, driven by a connection so strong it could only be forged by destiny. But love is forbidden, and darkness surrounds them.
Loyalties are tested. Lives are lost. Can they find the strength to love and survive? Or will bloodshed drown the only glimmer of hope in a cruel world?

About C.J. Heigelmann

Strongly influenced by the works of Homer, Hemingway, Tolkien, Twain, Emerson, Alice Walker, and Whitman, C.J. Heigelmann fluently expresses his work through a unique style in the classic form of innocence and eloquence, balanced by raw truth and grit without pretention. In 2011, he made the decision to write his first novel and embarked on 2 years of historical and cultural research for the foundation of his epic work. The first of his novels to come, An Uncommon Folk Rhapsody is an example of C.J. Heigelmann’s pursuit of perfecting the “Written Art of Storytelling”, by using strong visuals, emotions and narrations to substitute for the absence of a human “Storyteller.” He is currently an aspiring Novelist, Media Content Creator, and is employed on the managerial staff with a major university in South Carolina. His creative passion and impetus derive from his belief that, “Amor Vincit Omnia,” or more simply put, “Love conquers all”.
