May 21, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
For the Love of Johana, a new book by Patricia R. Liles, has been released by RoseDog Books.

In residence at his Hotel/Casino and mansion in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at Lake Tahoe, multi-millionaire Conrad Heink, informed that he is dying of cancer, realizes that his granddaughter, Johana, will become an heiress to a fortune too large for her to handle. She is 24 years old, paraplegic, and the only remaining member of the Heink family. He immediately begins to secure her future. When a clergyman's daughter, Megan Curtis, accepts his stunning proposal, he succumbs to Johana's pleas to go to Brazil by cruise ship.

Johana's pilgrimage, hopefully, will satisfy her yearning to observe the work of a prolific sculptor, a monk with no hands, introduced by Joao, her Brazilian companion who must return to his home.

There are many important people in Johana's life. Their lives are inexplicably changed as Johana's bizarre story unfolds. At the end of 14 days at sea, and the conclusion to the pilgrimage up a steep climb with a girl in a wheelchair, the world is no longer the same.
