Title: . Lost on Earth Romantic Thriller

Author: . Lily Alex

Line/Publisher: . greatunpublished.com

Release Date: . 2000

ISBN: 1-58898-077-4

Entertaining Read: Highly Recommended


The Review:
Appearing as a respectable businessman bored, forty two year old Robert Noirson must follow the rules of society when he attends a charity event helping to fund a Catholic run orphanage.
Chapter 1: part 1 begins with the meeting between orphaned Mary and Noirson. Mary is quick to understand that despite her misgivings she must accept the ministrations of Noirson. After all he is wealthy and can do much for the orphanage. If angered he can do them much harm. She must consider the other residents over her own feelings.

Chapter 2 leads to Scandal while Chapter 3 brings us a terrifying canine bent on destruction of religious figures who hope to persuade Mary to take a good look at Robert Noirson the man who is now her husband. Chapter 4 shows us a kidnapping and in Chapter 5 we read of Love and Punishments. Mary learns that what may bring pleasure at one point may only be punishment at another. Chapters 6 and 7 bring The Discovery and The Ordeals in which Mary and her husband live apart and Mary bears a child.

Part 2: The Loss opens with Chapter 1 At Home. Mary and the seventeen year old twins she is mothering live with a lamed Robert Noirson. Chapters 2: Work, Life, Rest and 3: Bats and Viruses add a little more to our understanding of these characters. Chapters 4: Truth, 5: Love and Fight and 6: A fork in the Road carry us forward to the inevitable Conclusion. Five years later when Mary and her four year old son attend the funeral of her divorced husband Robert Noirson his new wife is less than delighted. It was Angie who found Robert laying dead and clutching a picture of Mary to his chest.

Writer Lily Alex asks the question ‘Can angels fall in love and act like ordinary people?’ Then she sets out to show that yes, they very well may do exactly that. In Lost on Earth writer Alex takes an fascinating theorem and carries the reader on a rollicking roller coaster of excitement, turbulence, action packed and at times brutal events, outrage, and powerful language.

Lost on Earth paints a phantasm centered on affection and ruination in which phenomenon and conduct are interwoven. This is a book in which all supplication is answered, every transgression is soon punished. Devotion is woven throughout the tale with not even death capable of destroying the bond.

The format of chapters presents a series of interwoven short stories each of which is capable of standing alone. Alex’ writing is hard hitting, well thought out, and filled with plausible dialogue. Given the pretext of the work the situations are fiduciary and frightening in their stark reality.

English is not this writer’s first language; Writer Alex does an admirable job with the genre, the format and the prose.

This tale of fallen angels Lost on Earth is not for everyone. Those who are not willing to question and/or blindly accept religious dogma will most likely not like the book. For those who do like a well written text based on a fascinating notion within Christendom; Lost on Earth is a must read.
