In The Love In Our Tears Nathaniel Embers takes us to a place that feels almost otherworldly. A world deeply rooted in mountain tradition. The essence of the people of Wayah, North Carolina is one of family, friendship and community. And there is nothing superficial about the commitment these people have toward one another. They love accept and look out for each other in a way that the outside world has lost sight of.
Elenora Reese had all but forgotten how special the people of this rural community were until she has to return to her roots to care for her aging uncle. Though people looking in from the outside may judge these mountain folk of being backward or simple, Ele is about to be reminded that they are in fact, caring, selfless and strong.
The Love In Our Tears is the beautiful story of what the love of what community is supposed to look like.

The Almost Real Nathaniel Embers
In actuality Embers is the alter ego of Jon Frank played by Jeff Alexander on the new, hit web-series, WHEN FACT MET FICTION (YouTube and Vimeo). The Love In Our Tears marks a new way for the creators of WFMF to extend the romance and wit of the show to bookstores in both print and E-book formats.
