    Fall of a Righteous Man is love story that speaks to the hearts and souls of many who have traveled the road to love. A road that began together only to find that along the way promises made and dreams shared shift and change directions. This love story speaks of what happens when those shifts and changes take place and how a couple responds to them. The reader bears witness of the bliss of love’s first promise to the heart wrenching pain of manipulation and control through familiarity and how this comes into play in the guise of individual pursuits and separate desires. The author gives the viewpoint of both characters through a series of counterpoint interpretations in order for the reader to understand that neither person in this partnership is either innocent or villainous. They are just two people who truly love one another and want to be that safe harbor they each return to at the end of the day. Waist Deep creates an orbit around Kendrick Walker and Erika Turner-Walker, from... More > their chance meeting of love’s first recognition, their eventual marriage and the trials and tribulations of trying to keep their marriage alive. This is all done by his use of poetic verse and prose, love letters, prayer, scripture and self-talk. Early on in this love story, he asks you five questions regarding relationships that appear on the surface to be simple enough. Those five questions serve as a totem to guide you along the story line. As the story progresses you may think you have the final outcome only to experience one of several shifts that take the story in another direction than before. Those five questions later surface again to test your earlier answers and to see if they change up to this point in the story line before moving on to the final ending. The story opens from the viewpoint of Kendrick Walker and his chance meeting with Erika Turner then counterpoints with an interpretation of Erika’s first interactions with Kendrick. This continues over the course of their marriage as they struggle with broken promises and unfulfilled dreams. There are key moments where they each reach out to one another for help and understanding but in the pursuit of the preconceived ideas of success and happiness things continually get lost in translation. They each cling to their faith that they are destined for one another and ask for strength and guidance on to get back to what they were to each in the very beginning of their love story and marriage. They each are tempted by betrayals of the flesh but it is the betrayal of the heart and soul that quickly adds poison to this once vibrant union causing all other acts of betrayal to take root in quick succession. It is only at the end of the story as in life, that the reader and the characters are able to see the truth in all of its beauty and ugliness… the pain of hindsight. The read was quick, steady and one I was not ready to see end. I know that there is more to be heard from this creative burgeoning storyteller whose goal is to teach lessons and dig deep into the art of what makes a relationship begin in the first place, what makes it stagnant, what makes it die and what makes it vibrant and everlasting.< Less
