Pressbox (Press Release) -
A new novel, titled MARCH FOR PEACE, by GARY HERAKLEOUS, just published by WRITER’S SHOWCASE an imprint of IUNIVERSE.COM, Inc., boldly answers the question, when a group of peacemakers versus the powerful militarists.
The novel MARCH FOR PEACE, a political thriller, it is an adventure based on facts, set in Cyprus, an island torn apart by hate and war since 1963.
As the story begins, the Greeks and the Turks revolt against their own governments when forced to fight a new war. In return, the warlords undertake to suppress them. In response, unbending, the people create an upheaval that threatens the destruction of the war-machine.
Caught in the web of the conflict, kidnapped by the enemy, the American tourist Kathy and the children, are lost forever. A rescue attempt by her husband, teamed up with a few good friends, creates a political tumult, the beginning of a new battle, an open war against the government.
The Greek and Turkish rulers bind their people to a final choice: Obey the orders of the commanders and fight or be executed as traitors; or otherwise follow the desire of their souls, fight for peace and live afterwards with the consequences of their choice. The people are well aware the odds are against them. The powerful are in control. Can a decisive generation of peace-lovers resist the militarists and establish peace on this war-torn island?
March for Peace has a powerful message of human strength, the triumph of the human spirit over the mundane dominance of the powerful. It is the story of an intense search for peace and a counter-revolution against hate and war that kills people, destroys human lives, nullifies their spiritual worth.
