Press release from: Adelaide Books

ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to offer the latest work by Jan Marin Tramontano What Love Becomes hitting stores everywhere on February 7th, 2019.

What Love Becomes is a work of literary fiction that traces the intimate landscape of two contemporary marriages from their idealistic, yet misguided beginnings. Each couple mistakenly believes their happily ever after will come without really knowing who’ve they’ve married. What begins as self-deception quickly morphs into deception on a larger scale. Over time, their wounds come to define them—a marine, chronically ill from pills he took in the Persian Gulf War to protect him from Sarin gas, a ballet dancer whose ambitions are crushed by a single encounter, a woman desperate to have a baby, a man whose wife barely tolerates him and can’t bring herself to love their child. Long-simmering tensions ultimately explode and the couples’ lives intertwine as the novel weaves through past and present. At its heart, this story is about the choices we make, how they shape our lives, and how our innate resilience propels us toward reclaiming the lost parts of ourselves.

"Jan Marin Tramontano has given us a novel of love and disenchantment, of dashed dreams and sustained hope as the lives of married professionals collide. Sexy, unflinching, pin-point accurate in its portrayal of parenting, WHAT LOVE BECOMES is exhilarating work. With her nimble prose, her lyrical word work, her compassion, and her vision, this novelist creates a world in which I believe and characters about whom I care. Read this book.” James Robison, novelist, short story writer, screenwriter, and poet.

Jan Marin Tramontano is a novelist and poet. Her short stories, poetry and novel excerpts have been published in numerous literary journals, magazines, and newspapers. Tramontano lives with her husband in Naples, Florida.
