Press Release for A Loving Son

A Loving Son

By Michael Douglas Bosc

The dynamics of a disturbing mother-son relationship are examined against a bleak mid-century backdrop marred further by crime and murder in A Loving Son (published by AuthorHouse), the dramatic new novel by Michael Douglas Bosc.

It was 1931 when Diane Saunders arrived in Norwich with her infant son, Stanley. The hardships of single motherhood became even more complicated when Diane, who was always complimented on her pretty face, began to sell her body for money, prostituting herself to support her beloved son.

Growing up, Stanley always knew what his mom did for a living. He could hear the snickers behind his back at school and the kids would call her ugly names. At night she would come home crying as she crawled into bed with him. She had been sleeping with Stanley his whole life, first out of necessity, then for comfort when the bombs were falling, and their sleeping arrangements would subsequently provide her the opportunity to teach her son about how to please a woman.

Having been exposed to sex from a young age, Stanley has no problem getting a date with classmate Gillian, who quickly becomes his girlfriend and the two grow to be inseparable. Meanwhile, Diane’s business is booming and she’s set up a new escort agency with prostitution on the side.

Stanley finds himself growing up faster than he ever could have imagined when Gillian is raped and becomes pregnant. And when a powerful gangster assaults his mother, Stanley begins an irrevocable transformation. Find out what happens in A Loving Son, a psychological thriller that shows what happens when the boundaries of sexuality and revenge are pushed.
