An Uncommon Folk Rhapsody by C.J. Heigelmann

A Single Moment Of Pure Love Is Worth A Thousand Lifetimes.


He was an orphan boy from Asia who had big dreams. He left his country and fought a war that wasn't his. In a new country, with new people and a new way of life, the only thing connecting him with his past was his mother's jade amulet.

She was a beautiful young girl from Africa. One day a ship arrived and they captured her village and forced them on a slave boat to the new world. She was way too young and way too fragile to deal with the hardships of slavery. But she survived.

The Things They Did For Love...
10 years later during the American Civil War, he met her by chance and their lives changed forever. It was a feeling they had not encountered before. It was love. A forbidden love that transcended their society and status. It was an all-conquering love. An Asian boy and a slave girl trying to build their dreams from the ashes of the post-Civil War America.

Love Is The Beacon Of Light In A Dark Life!
In this spine-tingling historical romance story, author and storyteller C.J. Heigelmann will take you on an emotional rollercoaster that will reveal the intricate structures of our 1860s and 1870s society. By following the heart-breaking adventures of two people who are in love in an era of hate, you will see that love is the only power that can bring inner peace and warmth to your heart.

Can True Love Survive?

============================
About the Author

C.J. Heigelmann was born in Hartford, CT in the summer of 1969. He enjoyed an early childhood typical of any other pre-adolescent youth, living in a region steeped in the traditions and history of New England during the 1970’s. At age 12, he moved to Los Angeles and settled in Compton, California. As a young teenager, he traversed one of the most violent cities in America during the rise and height of gang warfare, which unfortunately became known as one of the most notorious murder capitals in the world. In 1988, at age 18 he faced a crossroad in his life and decided to enlist in the United States Air Force, where he served in the 1st Gulf War as well as other deployments. During one such deployment, he witnessed first-hand and survived the Mt. Pinatubo Volcanic eruption and its aftermath, which destroyed all major U.S. military installations in the vicinity, and devastated the Island of Luzon. 

After returning to the U.S. and receiving his Honorable Discharge, he married and fathered two daughters. He continued his formal education in Industrial Engineering Technology, while also immersing himself in his true passion, Literature and World History. After his divorce in 2011, he made the decision to write his first novel and embarked on two years of historical and cultural research for its foundation. In 2014, after a decade of traditional employment, it became apparent that the time and stress of his occupation were hindering his creative progress, so he made another life-changing decision and resigned his financially lucrative position in the Engineering Department of a Fortune 50 corporation. He purchased a boat and moved aboard as a recluse, to give himself wholly to his work and fulfill his vision. 

The first of his novels to come, AN UNCOMMON FOLK RHAPSODY, is an example of C.J. Heigelmann’s pursuit of perfecting the “Art of Storytelling” on paper, by using strong visuals, emotions, and narrations to substitute for the absence of a human “Storyteller.” He is currently an aspiring Novelist, Vlogger, Media Content Creator and is employed on the managerial staff with a major university in South Carolina. His creative passion and impetus derive from his belief that, "Amor Vincit Omnia." That is, “Love conquers all.”
