Gastien: The Cost of a Dream: Free eBook

Editor’s Note: In GASTIEN: THE COST OF A DREAM, peasants learn that they shouldn’t dream. The cost can be extremely high.

Book Description: Gastien Beauchamp has far bigger dreams than a mere peasant has a right to. When he leaves home to pursue his dreams in nineteenth century Paris, he has no idea how high of a cost he’ll pay in order to survive. Regardless, he vows to stop at nothing in order to fulfill his dream of becoming an artist and great lover. After all, what could be worse than the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father? Sometimes the “impossible” is possible—but the cost can be extremely high.

Author’s Inspiration: As an artist and nonconformist myself, I have always been drawn to the bohemian art era of nineteenth century Paris. I also love character driven novels and wanted to tell an epic family saga that starts with a peasant who had a dream to become a great artist. What could possibly go wrong?

 Caddy Rowland

 I like a book that makes me think and feel. A book that helps me understand another type of person’s motivation, even if it differs from what I’ve embraced as acceptable. That is what I strive for when writing. I don’t much care for predictable stories, nor do I like books that follow a specific formula. I like to tell stories about the sublime joy and bitter tragedy of being human. My writing is raw, “real”, graphic, and sometimes brutal. There isn’t always a happy ending, although sometimes it happens. My main characters have major flaws, and they don’t always learn the lessons predictable storylines demand. People don’t always change to become what you want, so neither should fictional characters.

My novels aren’t for everyone. Then again, they may just be for you.
