The Complete Human By: Kyle S. Blum What is it to be human, what is it that makes us human, and would answering these questions in any way better prepare us, or in some way enable us, to live lives that are “Healthy, Happy, and Whole”? Is a life marked by these qualities even possible, is “Completeness” conceivable, when experience proves we are unhealthy, unhappy, and broken? In a world where we are progressively inundated with terrible news, increasingly experiencing tragedy (either by the hand of cosmic forces or terroristic in nature), we find ourselves divided, disenchanted, disenfranchised, dissatisfied, despondent, and deprived of any sense of security, unity, direction, or purpose—is there any real hope, any redemptive reality, any salvific program for posterity that might rectify our present precarious position? Or has our course been preordained, driving us decidedly further into despair, discord, and depravity? Have our faces been set as flint toward destruction, by some twisted sadistic cosmic puppeteer, unable to turn to the left or to the right, watching, aware but unable to alter our course, as if bobbing helplessly in the wooden barrels of our lives, ever so swiftly towards the roaring falls of fate—or do we have some manner of control, some efficacious outworking of the very best of what we are, that can help us navigate, safely and successfully, the uncertain, unrelenting, and unforgiving river of life? And if we are to allow that there are certainly circumstances that are outside of our control, are we able, by will, tenacity, determined choice, or some other impetus toward strength—to stand, maneuver, achieve, and experience life on our own terms, existing and thriving in spite of the flow and tide of circumstance? Is there a course to “Completeness”? Is there a way to be “Healthy, Happy, and Whole”? Absolutely! This book shows the way.

Sometimes losing one love is the only way to learn how to fight for another. With her husband's dying breath, he promised to send Maddie an angel to heal her broken heart. So every day in the year since Wayne's tragic boating accident, she's been watching and waiting... Rescued from a storm at sea, Chase can't remember who he is or where he came from—so he travels from port to port, looking for clues to his past. A twist of fate sends him to the small Florida town of Sugar Bay, and Maddie’s sure her angel has arrived. Only Chase’s presence is anything but angelic. Not only is he pushing Maddie to break out of her family’s dysfunctional cocoon and see the truth about her marriage, he’s waking up parts of her she didn’t know even existed.

As Chase's shocking past and true identity begin to emerge, it leads Maddie to a disturbing mystery, unexpected danger—and the determination to fight for a love she knows can only be Heaven sent...
