Masterpiece (A Love Story): A memoir about sexual abuse, by Alan Searle Struggling to consciousness in an alcoholic haze, the author finds himself face to face with the God he adored as a child but who he thinks abandoned him.
The confrontation comes in a worn-down motel room which he figures is just another stop on the way to life on the street. Instead, it’s the first stop on a journey back to physical and spiritual health, and a life transformed. Masterpiece (A Love Story) begins as a painful and tragic story of what evil can do to the innocent. It ends as proof that God restores and heals all who hear His call, and then call on Him in return.
This is a story that will encourage the found as well as the lost.

The Lie Called Cancer, A Divine Comedy, by Alan Searle: A memoir about being treated for cancer
This book may not be for you. That’s because we’ll spend a lot of time talking about various parts of the author’s internal landscape. It could be cringe-worthy in spots. But a truthful tale about bladder cancer has to be like that. On the other hand, this book may be for you, because it’s funny and uplifting. And who doesn’t need that in these wretched times? Don’t lie – you know you need that.
The funny part comes from Alan’s direct sense of humor, which you will enjoy. The uplifting part comes from the reality that truth is stranger than fiction.
This book is raw and sometimes rude. It rips the bandage off to reveal the author’s wounds, physical and spiritual. It shows how prayer and encouragement bound him up when he hurt, lifted him up when he was down, and moved him forward when he was fearful and ready to quit.
