International Day of Peace and the release of Strays of Rio!

Edith Parzefall’s Action-Packed Thriller, Strays of Rio, Set for Release on International Day of Peace 

To celebrate the release of Strays of Rio on International Day of Peace Edith has  used her novel's topical subject matter  in a media release to help spread awareness of the plight of children in Brazil.

Only the other day the news from the city of Rio centered on homeless children being targeted by gunmen.

Truth is often stranger than fiction, and Edith has captured some of the aspects of life on the streets of Rio and brought them to life in a thrilling tale of determination, endurance and courage.

International Day of Peace will only succeed in achieving better conditions for those who live in fear, if we don't turn our back on what is going on.

It took a visit to Rio to open Edith's eyes to the condition of the stray children there. There is always hope for a better future, and in Strays of Rio, that hope is woven through a dramatic and often frighteningly true to life journey.

Thanks so much for your encouraging words, Rosalie. You're absolutely right, turning our backs on situations we feel unable to change only destroys hope.

Congratulations Edith on getting out the book, a topic worth getting in the face of the world as the Olympics marches toward Rio.

This makes me so happy, Edith! Thank you, Rosalie, for featuring this novel. And yes, Rasana, it is indeed a great book. I had the privilege of reading it in the pre-release phase, and trust me--it's worth every bit of the hype. Edith shines a very strong and compassionate spotlight on those children, and she does it in a way that keeps you turning pages as fast as you can take it all in.
