It’s the story of Jack Taylor and his life-long journey to find one woman who would love him unconditionally.
This is an epic journey along the road less traveled and littered by the bones of other hopeless romantics who also failed to find unconditional love. Jack discovers it is not what you find at the end of the journey, but the journey itself.
The story of Jack Taylor begins in his childhood, as he sets off on a life-long journey to find a lover who will accept him for all that he is and is not. Jack does not realize he has been on such a journey until his mother dies. She dies only hours after he has made plans to move home and take care of her. Following her death, Jack is forced to revisit his childhood bitterness for manipulating women.
By accident, the power of a youthful first love resurfaces and begins to soften his heart. Jack becomes entangled in the doomed relationship. In retreat, Jack almost misses the love affair he longed for, only to have it stolen from him by unchangeable circumstances. Deciding to abandon his convictions to find unconditional love, Jack settles for a larger endeavor – trying to instill the impenitent search for inner peace in his young daughter.
A Journey Through Pines is a pilgrimage all humans pursue, yet one that leaves them unsure of what they have found until faced with losing it along the way. Jack Taylor was a risk taker unafraid of falling from grace in the name of leaving behind an ancestral message of love.
