A little love story : a novel by Roland Merullo( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,358 libraries worldwide
In this novel the author has created a sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious tale of attraction and loyalty, jealousy and grief. It is a classic love story with some modern twists. Janet Rossi is very smart and unusually attractive, an aide to the governor of Massachusetts, but she suffers from an illness that makes her, as she puts it, "not exactly a good long-term investment." Jake Entwhistle is a few years older, a carpenter and portrait painter, smart and good-looking too, but with a shadow over his romantic history. After meeting by accident, literally, when Janet backs into Jake's antique truck, they begin a love affair marked by courage, humor, a deep and erotic intimacy and modern complications. Working with the basic architecture of the love story genre, the author, a former carpenter known for his novels about family life breaks new ground with a fresh look at modern romance, taking liberties with the classic design, adding original lines of friendship, spirituality, and laughter, and, of course, probing the mystery of love

Otto Ringling and his sister Cecelia could not be more different.

"As they venture across America, Otto and the affable, wise, irritating, and inscrutable holy man engage in a battle of wits and wisdom. Otto, a born skeptic, sees his unwanted passenger as a challenge: a man who assumes the knowledge of the ages yet walks a mortal's path. But he also sees their unexpected pairing as an opportunity to take Volya Rinpoche on a journey of cultural discovery, with visits to quintessentially American landmarks (the Hershey'S factory, Wrigley Field) and forays into some favorite American pastimes (bowling, miniature golf, dining out)." "It is Otto, however, who has embarked on the real journey, that of self-discovery, led by his strange and remarkable passenger. By the time they reach North Dakota, Otto's head is reeling with the understanding that so much of what he had believed - as well as so much of what he had doubted - must be rethought before his journey can truly begin."--BOOK JACKET
