She’s a Democrat, he’s a Republican. She spends her days fighting global warming at an environmental non-profit, he makes his living doing PR for Bell Motors and their fleet of SUVs. But as soon as they meet, Emily Crossley and Robert Drake realize they have encountered their intellectual match. You’re never challenged, he tells her. You’ve surrounded yourself in a cocoon of people who think exactly the same way you do. She hurls the same accusation back at him, and the fiery debates begin.

Despite both of their attempts to derail it, there is no denying that they are falling in love. But their relationship is threatened by political differences, Robert’s excessive work hours, and Emily’s fear of losing her identity as she falls deeper in love.

Can their love survive? The Drake Equation is a tale of modern love and all its complexities.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

It is so refreshing to read a romantic story where the characters are developed & the dialogue, intelligent. I consider this book a fast read and that’s a good thing because I found it difficult to shut my Kindle off. H. Walsh’s style is crisp, clean & concise.

*******

Heather Walsh created what any successful novel should do, entertain of course, but get the reader to challenge one’s thoughts, beliefs and way of looking at the world’s problems.

I really enjoyed reading this book! The characters were believable, and it was well written — I felt like I was right there watching the story unfold. I was quickly absorbed into the book and found it hard to put down; in fact, I ended up staying up late one night to finish it, and was then disappointed when it ended — I wanted more!

*******

I loved this book. A modern, fresh take on relationships in our politically charged world. So often I find myself bored by the “will they; won’t they.” This story leaves that superficiality aside in favor of great character development and strong, witty writing. The dialogue is sharp and the characters are realistic (which is so often not the case in love stories). And I learned something about carbon emissions! A must read!

*******

The Drake Equation is a fantastic read! I found it hard to put my book down! I enjoyed Dented Cans but found The Drake Equation even better! Can’t wait for the next novel, a great young author is emerging! You are 2 for 2 Ms. Walsh….looking forward to number 3.

About The Author

Heather Walsh grew up in North Haven, CT, fantastically close to Pepe’s pizza.

She received a B.A. in English at Mary Washington College, which has been renamed to, drum roll please… the University of Mary Washington. This was after a failed attempt to name it Washington & Monroe University, because there aren’t enough schools honoring dead Virginian men already. Heather graduated Phi Betta Kappa and summa cum laude, which sounds kind of fancy but really means she took easy classes.

She taught high school English in Brooklyn for one year, where she loved the students but not the system. She then joined corporate America and worked there for too many years as an IT trainer, project manager, business analyst, and SQL dabbler (select * from Drake_Equation).

Her favorite writer is Alice Munro, her favorite movie is The Godfather Parts I & II (tied for first), and her favorite TV show is The Wire. She has lived in some pretty neat places, including Brooklyn (kind of before it was hipster-cool to do so), Manhattan, and San Francisco. The unfortunate result of living in these locations is that she has become an obnoxious foodie.

She currently lives in Brookline, MA with her husband, Mike DeLucia, and her two children. Her first novel, Dented Cans, has sold over 5,000 copies.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Heather Walsh and ENT appreciate it.
