While the holiday season brings happiness to most, for many others it triggers painful memories of lost loved ones, or the challenge of being separated from family and friends during this usually festive time.

Michael Neale has captured the heart of hope and triumph in the midst of tragedy while writing his debut novel THE RIVER, and can offer you some real encouragement for those facing a difficult season.  It may be:

-The special pain many children face during the holidays when they’ve lost a parent

-When a Mom or Dad is far away during the holidays due to divorce or separation, and who suffers more…the child or the parent

-Military families facing difficult separation during the holidays

-Visiting your hometown as part of holiday travel and the flood of sad memories and melancholy that may accompany it

-the uplifting hope that can be found during the holiday season that’s unlike any other time of the year.

Michael Neale was best known until earlier this year as a Dove Award-Winning songwriter whose work has been recorded by artists such as Michael W. Smith, Natalie Grant (“Your Great Name,” the 2012 Worship Song of the Year), Rebecca St. James, Todd Agnew and Phillips, Craig and Dean.

Now Michael Neale is receiving rave reviews for his novel The River.  Through Michael’s masterful storytelling, readers find themselves immersed in the life of Gabriel Clarke who, on what should have been an ordinary day by the river near his home, saw his life changed forever.  See Michael performing music inspired by The River and see his book trailer @ http://www.TheRiverExperience.com/
