So when he breaks up with his girlfriend of three years, he decides to coast for a while.
But for Kevin, there are important lessons to be learned, and even if he was running fast, life has a way of catching up to everyone to deliver the universal message: things are not always as they seem.Spanning an emotional range from sorrow to hope to fulfillment, Trey Moore’s debut novel is an emotional journey that overflows with the joyous spirit of acceptance and love.
Determined to live on a free and easy plane, Kevin is unprepared for the three people who soon enter his life: Miranda Rhodes, who challenges him- Konstantine DiMarko, who teaches him perspective and compassion- and Miss Lindsey, who becomes his consciousness. Each one is different, bringing their own point of view and approach to life, and Kevin must learn to see outside the box he has created for himself and let go of old, preconceived notions, instead embracing and accepting people for who they are – even celebrating their differences. The deeper he dives into his new friendships, the more twists and turns life throws at him and the more skilled he must become at adapting to them.
But you never know what the universe has in store, and Kevin is about to learn that life is a gift, and gifts are to be appreciated and never taken for granted.A story with deceptive depth and complexity, Moore delivers a fascinating depiction of the need to understand moments and events from other people’s perspectives to better understand not only our world but also ourselves.
His confident use of symbolism and subtle inflection of diverse philosophies provide a thought provoking glimpse into a world where judgment and perspective are irrevocably altered for the better. Profoundly moving, Power Lines in the Rain sheds light on the importance of all of life’s choices, a reminder that how things are viewed is a gift whose power is in our own hands.
