Description


The life and times of Sean Rousseau, all-told a nice, but average guy, possessing a few quirky personality traits. Principally among them, a deep objective affinity for practicable analytical thinking and problem solving on all matters from the world of business to his spiritual beliefs, all formulated growing up in the bland 1950s and turbulent 1960s. Through an ill-fated marriage and the passing, one-by-one, of all of his family members, especially the tragic and untimely loss of his beloved little sister, Sean, leads an everyday stoic and solitary life that is pretty much okay, but life is slowly passing him by.

Unbeknownst to him, he is being shadowed ominously by an evil greater than he can fully comprehend or even imagine; an evil that lies in wait for his lapses into an unbearable sense of nothingness, for the opportunity to rear up and consume him, mind, body, and soul.

But the Blessed Virgin Mary watches over him, through the intercession of a mother's love for her son, and later through a blind date with a woman who becomes the love of his life until her sudden death. Followed by a chance meeting with a second woman months later in the remote and mysterious lakeshore Hamlet of Misty Waters, each occurring when he is at the greatest peril of descending despairingly, finally and forever, into the void of nothingness.
