For Love & Liberty, He Will Do Everything (PR Newswire)

Author weaves a timely and cautionary tale that reflects a rare perspective on history that’s rarely found anywhere but very much needed these days

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., May 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — “The federal government is no longer servant of the people but is now master of the people. The flame of liberty is being gradually extinguished by a soft trickle down tyranny. Each American generation is called to honor liberty by securing its blessings to posterity…” – A Quote from the Novel

Full of drama, romance, and a historical perspective that’s so apt in today’s society; this provocative political drama introduces readers to a remarkable protagonist – and his love for a woman, for his country, and for the blessings of liberty. Author Stephen Grimble skillfully interweaves early American history with a poignant love story in a page-turning saga that pays homage to the Founding Fathers’ sacred trust to secure liberty’s blessings to posterity.

In For Love and Liberty, readers will witness the actions of six distinguished citizens who, out of concern for America’s future, form the Madison Committee, named for the Father of the Constitution, James Madison. There’s McCoy, a retired business executive, decorated Vietnam veteran, and philanthropist, who agrees to chair the committee, whose charter is to determine what can be done to restore America to its founding principles: limited government, individual liberty, and fiscal solvency.

With his beautiful wife Marlenna’s blessing, McCoy runs for governor of Texas in 2014 and wins. He convinces many fellow governors to urge their state legislatures to petition Congress for a convention. Unanticipated events draw McCoy reluctantly into the 2016 presidential election. By the time the election is decided, more than two-thirds of the states have petitioned Congress to call a constitutional convention, but, fearing the loss of power, it fails to do so.

In response to this breach of the Constitution and other usurpations by the federal government, three states seriously consider seceding from the United States and forming a new constitutional republic. How would McCoy and his colleagues ensure that the current generation of Americans honors the Founders’ challenge to secure the blessings of liberty to posterity?  Readers are about to find out.
