Jamal Cadoura’s second novel takes readers on a journey of self-awareness through an unlikely friendship.
March 09, 2016 — Twenty-five year-old Matthew Stance is struggling to find his way in the world: he’s detached from his family and old friends, doesn’t have a career, and is still heartbroken over an ex-girlfriend of two years. Happiness is an illusion in Matthew’s eyes, something he chases endlessly but ceases to capture.
His life is altered when he sits on a vacated bench spot near the Detroit River – which happens to be claimed by Charles, a tenacious homeless man who combats and claws for what’s his.
“Jamal is quickly proving to be an author of note,” says publisher Catherine Rayburn-Trobaugh. “Tides That Turn is polished and professional—a story of strong and authentic emotions with characters who are both believable and genuine.”
Set in the backdrop of Detroit, Michigan, Tides That Turn captures the raw, personal growth of both characters coupled with their demanding struggles. Matthew and Charles are lifelike characters, demonstrating how friendship and compassion conquer the deepest of issues.
