Smooth Sailing Christmas Cake

Gianni DeVincenti Hayes, Ph.D, has put her heart and soul into a story that allows readers to explore humanity’s feelings: Adoration for others, thoughts, dreams, as well as the fears and hate, that constantly plague us. The story emphasizes the importance of communication with, and love for, another—or the lack of love, even for God—that forces each of us to go on that risky journey, called “The Search.” Roxane, who despises her father, gets a double dose of abhorrence and disgust when he tries to fix Roxane’s furnace in freezing Christmas weather. The resulting tragedy puts Roxane on a path of self-destruction, causing her to isolate herself from everyone. She must go on that search to find cause for her own existence.
