Clyde Hedges Releases “Evergreen” Novel
Clyde Hedges is proud to announce the release of his latest novel, "Evergreen," published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform earlier this month. Hedges' seventh novel to be published, "Evergreen" follows a pivotal year in the main character's past as he reflects on the forbidden high school love affair he had with his English teacher nearly 20 years back. The riveting romance novel is now available for purchase in paperback and Kindle ebook through Amazon and CreateSpace.com.
While there are elements of the book reminiscent of The Graduate and other coming-of-age stories, "Evergreen" sets itself apart from typical romance novels with its in-depth analysis and emotional exploration. It takes a fresh perspective that provides insight from the minds of both an adolescent boy with a very raw and uninhibited infatuation with his teacher, and that of the teacher- a young woman who finds an inexplicable and rare chemistry with her 17 year old student.
Hedges doesn't just tell a story about two people who find themselves in an unconventional romance. Rather, the author crafts a masterful drama that depicts the politics and psychology of an entire town and how the monotony of rural life can cause a teenage boy to develop a lust for something new, interesting, and unexpected. In the novel, Hedges provides exceptional attention to detail with fun, yet realistic twists throughout the progression of the story.
