HEADLINE: H. Melvin James’s new book “Tares among the Wheat” is an enchanting story of magic, love, and battle.


H. Melvin James, a dedicated writer and a passionate traveler, has completed his most recent book “Tares among the Wheat”: an enthralling tale of mysteries surrounding life, spirituality, and faith in times of great trial.

James shares, “This second volume concludes the two established primary framed storylines that traverse the entirety of the novel. Herein, mysteries of mysticism, religion, and ancient legend, as introduced in the previous book, are granted explanation and plausibility. As the storylines converge toward simultaneous conclusion at the end of the novel, other mysteries arise and are resolved.

Events and experiences described in this volume include extremes of sorrow, horror, joy, and romance. In this saga, as in life, there are those who meet more suffering than comfort; but the balance of the aggregate, inevitably, and eventually tilts toward triumph, justice, peace, and contentment. Redemption, as in reality, is both compromised and realized.

Episodes herein expose the cruelty of humanity as the torments of warriors and the crimes of civilians. Ultimately, however, the unconquerable collective of human decency, determination, and faith prevail. Senseless murders punctuate the merciless decade of the horrific Dust Bowl and the Great Depression. In this volume, those murders, as well as other crimes, fraud, assault, and theft, are brought to the justice of mortals, while the non-statutory transgressions of greed, power, vanity, and selfishness are left to the infallible and certain justice of the Almighty.

Surprises for the reader, pleasing and teasing, are unveiled in this volume. These storylines also reclaim the obvious axiom, our predecessors often do not succeed for themselves, in their own lifetimes, but they plant the fields of wheat for their descendants to reap the harvest, and since no soul takes anything from this earth in his departing, is not one’s legacy the only true tangible success?”

Published by Fulton Books, H. Melvin James’s book sets off from its preceding novel and continues the saga of awe-inspiring bewitchment and legacy.

Follow a journey of magic and meandering experiences that are sure to captivate hearts and inspire warmth and wonder.

Readers who wish to experience this fascinating work can purchase “Tares among the Wheat” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
