An Eternal Melody is now available in paperback

Readers have been asking for a paperback version of “An Eternal Melody” and now it’s here.  The book has received Five-Star reviews on Amazon.  Some of the readers have said:

“Paul James Zack is not only a superb writer, but he also truly understands the sensibilities and feelings of both women and men. He’s crafted a deliciously spiced love story seasoned with a hint of the metaphysical–a modern romance with well-developed characters that had me laughing, crying, titillated and wanting more. His book is a model for what a romance novel should be. And while women tend to be the main consumers of this category, I believe many men will also enjoy this story, especially those who hear the call of the wild.”

“I was mesmerized by the characters. It was surreal to retrace some of the familiar places this Wyoming girl calls home and to view the incredible pictures the author unfolds with his words. He depicts Wyoming beautifully in its landscapes. Wonderful author and a great storyteller!”

Out from the shadows: An Eternal Melody

By Paul James Zack

Stories and scenes come alive in the time shadows of our minds.  An elusive fragment of late afternoon rests on your thoughts . . . the ephemeral light of an ancient evening embraces the land . . . the bonds of physical reality float away in the vastness of the night.

Time shadows.  Where you have been.  And where you never were.  A person you loved, once upon a season, long ago, but still today.  Do they remember?  Did they ever know?

Always the stories.  The stories remain, after the parting, after the dust disappears on the wind.  The stories allow us to live, and live again.  Can we ask for anything more?

An Eternal Melody is the story of cowboy singer Casey Beckett and western artist Victoria Ames.  Casey, fast approaching the middle of his life, is a man out of place in a world run by clocks and computers.  Bonded to the land with his Wyoming roots, yet driven by restlessness he can only vaguely understand, he travels the country to sing and recite cowboy poetry.  Victoria, middle-aged and separated from her husband, is struggling to follow her dreams.  She yearns to live in the infinite vistas of the western landscapes she creates on canvas, but wonders if her desires can ever be attained in a life where her every step forward has been matched by retreat.

When Casey walks into Victoria’s art gallery on a hot June day, their lives are forever changed as they begin a passionate romance transcending the boundaries of time and place.  Written in poetic prose, An Eternal Melody is an unforgettable tapestry of tenderness and yearning, defining what it means to dance to the music within one’s heart.  Set in harmony with the lyrical soul of the land, this love story reminds us that hope can exist even at the darkest hours, at the final curtain, and that with courage and affirmation, a man and a woman together can fulfill their shared destiny.  An Eternal Melody will speak to your spirit and haunt you with its passion.
