From award winning author Carey Richard comes his debut literary fiction--a compelling journey through the beautiful fields of the human heart. Kirkus Reviews describes it as, "A highly personal story that mines the psychology of betrayal and forgiveness . . ."
Afghanistan was a beautiful land until greed and ambition pillaged its fertile valleys. She was beautiful too. Betrayed and broken, she journeyed through forty years of nomadic longing as her picturesque village disintegrated along with her hope. Unlike her beloved land, she at last discovered her place of rest.
Though she remains unnamed, her Poppy Field Diary is a story for everyone who has ever loved. We dream, we hope, and we fall in love, only to hurt the thing we cherish most. But a few rare and beautiful relationships survive that lonely journey through the minefields of passion to discover intimacy, kindness, and forgiveness.
"I was wrong to dream. I was wrong about many things. But most of all, I was wrong about love." --The Poppy Field Diary
"It is absolutely a wonderful book!" --5 Stars, David Burnett for the Kindle Book Review
" . . . his prose sings lyrically." --Kirkus Reviews
