Then one day Dante, the son of the villa’s powerful industrialist owner, invites her inside and shows her the enchanting Mermaid Garden. From that moment, Floriana knows that the only destiny for her is there, in that garden, with Dante. But as they grow up and fall in love, their romance causes a crisis, jeopardizing the very thing they hold most dear.

The Havana Room is the tale of a man from his fall from the heights of power and wealth in New York to the moment where he might well die. Bill Wyeth is a successful real-estate attorney in his late thirties with a wife and son, who, by the merest chance, loses everything: family, job, status. Unmoored and alone, Wyeth drifts toward the city's darker corners. Restoration seems unlikely, redemption impossible, when Wyeth finds himself in an old-time Manhattan steakhouse. He is intrigued by the manager, Allison Sparks--sexy, complicated, and independent in all ways. She also controls access to the restaurant's private bar. This is the Havana Room, and what goes on in there, he's told, is secret. Wyeth agrees to help Alison's friend, Jay Rainey, in concluding a last-minute midnight real-estate transaction. As soon as he sees the players and the paperwork, Wyeth knows something is wrong. Within hours, Wyeth finds himself tangled in Rainey's peculiar obsessions, which involve a Chilean businessman who feels he's been swindled, an old farmer frozen dead to a bulldozer, an outrageous black owner of a downtown hiphop club, and a fourteen-year-old English girl. Only Rainey knows the connections among these people, which are revealed when Wyeth is finally admitted to the Havana Room--where the survival of its inhabitants is most uncertain.

If you could but see it, nearly everything about the way human culture treats sex is expressive of fear. If sex were a child, it would be the most battered and brutalized child in the universe. In its genuine spiritual or authentic character, sex is repressed, suppressed, denied, covered up, legislated, caged, and not allowed to see the light of day; while, at the same time, in its institutionalized and public expressions it is distorted, exploited, ridiculed, flagrantly flashed in everyone's face and paraded through the streets. This book is the narration of a young man who died of AIDS in the early 1990's. It is a graphic description of his homosexual drives and engagements. Then it turns to his personal encounter with the Grace of God. That is followed by his ongoing transformation and a prophetic ministry from God through him. Can it ""aid"" the reader to wake-up to the power of the Risen One that resides within those that believe?
