Sinossi

Songs of the Heart. A Symphony of the Soul.

LOVE CONQUERS ALL! In Life and in Death…

Inspired by true historical events, An Uncommon Folk Rhapsody reveals the story of a recently orphaned young Asian boy wearing a jade amulet, once owned by his mother, now the only link to his past. Over time, an American merchant ship's captain transforms this once timid young boy into an admirable young man as he becomes a scout, fighting for the Union Army during the height of the American Civil War.

A young girl ripped from her homeland in Africa and forced to endure the horrors aboard a slave ship set sail for the American shores. She is sold into slavery and taken to a plantation deep in Alabama, where she must find the strength to brave the new world and accept her plight in life. No longer a free child running through the plains of Africa, she is now considered livestock to do the constant bidding of her Master.

Ten years later, by a chance of fate, the beautiful slave girl encounters the scout from the north and a forbidden romance is sparked. The two feel an immediate connection to one another, but the prospect of ever being together seems an impossible and dangerous dream to attain. The star-crossed lovers yearn to be with one another. All hope seems lost., But through their love and their loss, hope springs eternal. The reader will be forever touched by this eloquent story of love and survival amidst one of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history.

L'autore

C.J. Heigelmann was born in Hartford, CT in the summer of 1969. He enjoyed an early childhood typical of any other pre-adolescent youth, living in a region steeped with the traditions and history of New England during the 1970’s. At age 12, he moved to Los Angeles and settled in Compton, California. As a young teenager, he traversed one of the most violent cities in America during the rise and height of gang warfare, which unfortunately became known as one of the most notorious murder capitals in the world. In 1988, at age 18 he faced a cross-road in his life and decided to enlist in the United States Air Force, where he served in the 1st Gulf War as well as other deployments. During one such deployment he witnessed first-hand and survived the Mt. Pinatubo Volcanic eruption and its aftermath, which destroyed all major U.S. military installations in the vicinity, and devastated the Island of Luzon. After returning to the U.S. and receiving his Honorable Discharge, he married and fathered two daughters. He continued his formal education in Industrial Engineering, while also immersing himself in his true passion, Literature and World History. After his divorce in 2011, he made the decision to write his first novel and embarked on two years of historical and cultural research for the foundation of his epic tale. In 2014, after a decade of traditional employment, it became apparent that the time and stress of his occupation were hindering his creative progress, so he made another life changing decision and resigned his financially lucrative position in the Engineering Department of a Fortune 50 company. He bought a boat and moved aboard in reclusiveness, in order to give himself wholly to his work and fulfill his vision. The first of his novels to come, An Uncommon Folk Rhapsody is an example of C.J. Heigelmann’s pursuit of perfecting the “Written Art of Storytelling” on paper, by using strong visuals, emotions and narrations to substitute for the absence of a human “Storyteller.” He is currently an aspiring Novelist, Media Content Creator, and is employed on the managerial staff with a major university in South Carolina. His creative passion and impetus derive from his belief that, “Amor Vincit Omnia,” or more simply put, “Love conquers all”.
