2022's ALA Annual Conference and Exhibition Displayed Roy Haymond Jr.'s “The Best Is Yet to Come”

By: WebWire

The romantic book “The Best Is Yet to Come” by Roy Haymond Jr. was featured by ReadersMagnet at The American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference and Exhibition on June 23-28, 2022, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington DC.

This fascinating book is a bitter-sweet love story set in the blue-collar world. A man named Brad becomes disillusioned because his girlfriend from the eleventh grade is no longer available. And a handful of casual relationships along the road only add to his confusion.

Brad sits by and observes as far too many of his high school friends are trapped in unsatisfying relationships. Ten years later, he finds himself sucked into a catastrophic marriage only to be saved at the last minute by his high school girlfriend, whom he once thought he would marry.

He then moves into the run-down house that she owns, and the two of them are shunned by their neighbors because they are “living in sin.”

They renovate the house and enroll in a slew of college courses before getting married and welcoming the first of their four children. A pivotal juncture in their relationship prompts Brad to reflect on all the highs and lows of their time together, some of it in silent dialogue.
