The End of it's Course

CONFESSIONS OF A LONELY SOUL opens at the end of DeMarco Reid's life. Instead of the run of the mill eulogy, DeMarco decides to provide his family and friends with a videotape that not only rewinds time and shines light on pieces of his life, but shocking confessions...

Confessions of a Lonely Soul is a compelling novel about a lonely wife, a workaholic husband, adultery, guilt, consequences and secrets. The author, Harold Turley spins a story line that involves characters dealing with the effects of AIDS and Depression, a perspective not often presented together in novels at the time this book was published.

From the beginning of the story you are presented with a different setting than most novels. The author poured his creativity into this one. We've all read
