A Man with a Capital M
I am getting pretty psyched about the release of The Rose of Winslow Street. I am really proud of this book, mostly because of the hero, Michael Dobrescu. The Rose of Winslow Street is a celebration of manhood. Michael is a raw, brash hero with blunt edges and an earthy sense of humor. He is a man with a capital M.
I am sorry when I hear women in contemporary society denigrate men or emasculate our boys, because Men with a capital M are the fuel and the engine that makes this world go around. Yes, men often have a crude sense of humor or act like slobs on the weekend when a good football game is on, the beer is cold, and the wings are hot. So what? My husband works like a maniac all week, and if he wants to kick back with the NFL on the weekend, I’m happy to bring him a cold one and make the nachos.
So what makes a Man with a capital M? This is the guy who will run into a burning building to save a kid, and then be able to joke with the kid until the tears stop. He will calm my rattled nerves when the roof springs a leak in the middle of a hurricane. He doesn’t care if his coffee comes from Starbucks or 7-11, so long as it is hot. He does not whine, he does not hold grudges. He saddles up and get the job done, whether that means fixing the roof, signing up for a tour of duty in Afghanistan, or coaching kids on the little league teams. I love Men with a capital M.
If you do too, check out The Rose of Winslow Street. You won’t be disappointed!
