Promotional Post: Sawyer, Torey Hope: The Later Years, by A.D. Ellis #Review #Giveaway

Author: A.D.Ellis
Publisher: A.D. Ellis Publishing
Publishing Date: August 6, 2015
Length: 372 pages


Sawyer Morgan has a secret. Revealing his true feelings to his family could bring devastation and destruction, so he keeps the burden firmly on his own shoulders. When he moves back to Torey Hope to help with the family business, Sawyer’s hidden truth becomes too much to bear.

Luke Hamilton has a past overflowing with emotional and physical scars. A promise to his dying mother prevents him from seeking the love and acceptance he longs for. Taking a job in Torey Hope brings Luke face-to-face with taboo desires he thought long extinguished.

Secrets, lies, hatred, and fear threaten to destroy their lives. But, love has the power to overcome and lay claim to victory.

Will Sawyer succeed in proving to Luke some connections are worth fighting for?

A poignant tale of two hearts valiantly fighting to stay true and find love.


There is so much fear in this book. Fear of what people will do. About the retaliation they will face when they know your big secret.
This story is a tale in self-discovery in seeking acceptance and embracing the life you deserve to live.
Sawyer (the MC in this book) truly seeks what all kids do from their family… support. He wants to be what they want him to be all the while it’s like he’s screaming inside. “WHY CAN’T YOU SEE ME? WHY CAN’T I JUST TELL YOU?”
It was heartbreaking and it really shined a spotlight on the struggle all LGBT face at some point in their lives.
AD Ellis did a beautiful job with Sawyer and really showed the emotion well throughout this story.

Author Bio

A.D. Ellis is the award-winning author of two related collections of stories, A Torey Hope Novel Series and Torey Hope: The Later Years. Her debut novel, For Nicky, was voted #3 of the Top 50 Indie Books of 2014 by readers/voters. A.D.'s fourth novel, Loving Josie, was awarded the bronze medal in the contemporary romance category in the prestigious Readers' Favorite 2015 International Book Awards.

Born and raised in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. was an avid reader from the time she learned to read. She could often be found curled up somewhere with her nose in a book. Most of her friends and family were not such book enthusiasts, so A.D. got used to dealing with snickers and joking comments about her constant reading habits. Truth be told, Ms. Ellis has always been the definition of a book nerd.

A.D. always dreamed of being a teacher. Graduating from Indiana State University in 1999 and earning a Master's Degree from Indiana Wesleyan in 2003, she met her goal of entering the world of education. A.D. has been teaching in the inner city of Indianapolis, Indiana for 17 years. She spent the majority of her 17 years in fourth grade, but has now taken on the challenges of teaching 3rd and 4th grade alternative education students. A.D. loves teaching fractions, variables, probability, and graphing in Math. She loves almost all aspects of English Language Arts. Figurative language, theme, making predictions, drawing conclusions, inference, context clues, making writing come to life, A.D. loves it all! Her students don't always share in that enthusiasm.

She met her husband in college in 1996 and they married in June of 2000. She lives in a south side suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband and two school-aged children. When she's not reading or writing with music blaring, she can be found shopping at thrift stores, reading to her children, and sweating at the gym in the very early mornings.

A.D. began her writing journey in October 2013, and she is grateful for the friends and support she's found along the way.
