The Angry Man and The Beautiful Rose by S. Sloan is a story about Rachel, a beautiful, independent business owner and artist who seems to have everything. Despite what looks like success, she feels alone and lonely. In steps Jonathan, also a mover and shaker. He’s a handsome, successful investment broker but one thing challenges him: his temper. His temper has caused him to lose his family and the life that he once was accustomed to living. Then he begins dating Rachel and they get married. Will their character flaws bring them closer together or drive them apart? Will their love be enough for each other to overcome their individual challenges? Will Jonathan’s temper causes him to lose Rachel like he lost his family?
This is a nice story and a great piece of work. S. Sloan sets the stage in The Angry Man and The Beautiful Rose during its Prologue where a profound statement is made. When something of beauty comes into our lives, it must be cherished and not taken for granted because one never knows when the essence of that beauty will be taken away. Do not let your negativity or disregard for its purpose cause you to lose it. The Angry Man and The Beautiful Rose is the type of story to make you take a careful look at both yourself and the relationships that you have around you. Whenever two people come together, each comes in carrying their own baggage from self-esteem and insecurity to abuse and anger issues. These imperfect people are trying to make a whole relationship. But in creating that whole, each must examine themselves to determine if the other person that they are seeking is a good fit. This is a great eye-opening story, giving rise to reflection.
