Edward Mullen By EdwardMullen Completed

From the author of Prodigy and The Art of the Hustle comes the highly anticipated third novel from Edward Mullen. Available now in eBook stores!

Working as a stock clerk in a small-town grocery store only served as a constant reminder that Ben Owen’s life was meaningless. After a series of devastating events stripped him of everything he had, Ben hit rock bottom. To swing luck in his favour, temptation beckoned him at every turn. He had the opportunity to regain not only what he had lost, but so much more. But Ben soon realized everything he gained came at a price.

At its core, The Secret Manuscript is a riveting tale about a broken human spirit triumphing in the face of adversity, by any means necessary.

This makes me wonder whether 'living' and 'experiencing life' is a prerequisite for jotting down emotions one has not experienced. Struck a chord there.
