Dr William Glasser talks about Power as a basic need, much like love and fun. But he says that power isn't power over another person. It's really power of knowing who you are inside and loving yourself. Award Winning author, Rita Arens has written a compelling story of a young woman who is trying to figure it out. Does she want the power that money could bring? Or the power of loving someone who is rich, good-looking and successful? Or does she want to get a degree which will lead her to more power (and a better paying job)?
Which would you choose?
What happens when you're not ready for the power you desire?
Revisit the Greek myth of the sun god, Helios, and his son Phaeton -- only this time Helios is Helen, the fiery-haired chief executive of Aethon Power & Light in Chicago and Phaeton is Parker, her hot-headed son and only heir.
THE BIRTHRIGHT OF PARKER CLEAVES offers for mythology what Marissa Meyer’s CINDER did for young adult fairy tales – a nostalgic plot, a powerful love interest and a fresh twist.
Instead of heading to college, eighteen-year-old Meg lucks into a temporary position as personal secretary to Helen Cleaves, CEO of Aethon Power & Light.
When Helen's charming son turns his romantic attention toward Meg, she finds herself pulled along on Parker’s rule-bending quest for power within Aethon -- and her own struggle to determine the woman she will become.
