Ever had something stolen out from under you – and by a close friend no less? The feeling of loss is huge. Anger brews deep inside, producing anxiety and a certain sense of betrayal– a hollowness. That is exactly how Marcos Ryan, a budding young author, feels when the love of his life is swept out of his life. The downward spiral begins. Then, when critics pan his latest work, he goes into free fall; and finally as his best friend pilfers the greatest novel of his career he is left wearing the badge of plagiarist, for the public to see.
Short of a miracle, Marcos Ryan is ruined.
The only man who can save Ryan's career is the wealthy, powerful husband of the woman the writer has taken for his own lover. Besides the woman, the two men share one other thing – the teaching of fishing guide, Chief Robin Raintree. But have they heard his words the same? Have the Nookta Indian mystic's lessons made their point?
Fishing Lessons is not about the act of catching fish. It is about life. About love. About self-discovery. It is about believing in yourself and believing in others. It is about ignoring the critics and using your mind in following your heart along the Great Way.
"Crawley delivers his best yet. Something totally different from his pen. Never standing still, he never ceases to amaze one in his depth and variety; and Fishing Lessons is no exception."
