In answering the dilemma of how much plot to reveal in a description intended for marketing purposes, everything will fall into place simply by answering the question - Why should a person read this book?
Whatever it takes to answer this question will take care of the dilemma – I have found.
I gave away critical aspects of the story. Did it help? IT SOLD IT.
Here’s my answer to the question:
The issues in the novel THE PROVIDER concern the concepts of The Woman of Valor and The Man of Good Heart. Should she marry a man who may never become a successful financial provider? Should a woman remain with a husband while she suspects he may not have what it takes to become a success? Both the woman’s and the man’s values are tested. And perhaps most importantly, success is measured.
