Story depicts woman managing love, violence, revenge

In B.C. Goodwin's debut book "Love Trial" (published by Balboa Press AU), the author pens a coming-of-age story of the protagonist who has to face emotional and physical trials to get over the cruelty the world throws at her. The woman protagonist must learn to love again, to fight for survival and to keep distant from hatred.

Sarah Smith lived in the ignorant nice bubble where everything is good and colourful. Sarah later finds out that bad things and ugliness exist. Sarah's love interest is David Powers, a martial art expert that now works as a personal trainer. David knows how to manage Sarah's angry new emotions because he has been through it himself. Joining David and Sarah in the book is Louis Cole, the main villain.

"People can be blind to what is right in front of them. From a backstabbing best friend to the chaos in the streets, these are not always known to the public," Goodwin explains the book's premise. "There is a fight between good and evil in everyone. You should never let the evil win out. Love is stronger than hate, and no matter how much bad there is in the world, there is as much good and beauty."

An excerpt from the book:
"I said 'Are you okay?'" my mother repeated. This time I understood her question.
"I really don't know," I finally replied truthfully.
I really didn't know why it felt so good to do something so bad.
