The postcard read, “Don’t write no more, I may get a new address. Love U. ACM”
Alfred Clay Moore planned and carried out his suicide.
He needed answers to questions before he could leave, and it was his unaware best friend he turned to.
This is a love story between a young emergency room nurse and her aide, a self-taught man from the hollers of West Virginia, fifteen years older.
The story spans twenty years of their friendship: the games they played, the talks they had and the lessons they learned from each other. This is a heartfelt, poignant tale of a most unique relationship where role of teacher and student continually shifts from one to the other.
Although often touched by death in her profession, when she lost ACM, her other man, she had no coping skills for her own grief; she was empty for months.
In an effort to stay connected and able to feel him, she pulled out years of letters and pieced them together by date. Then with her morning coffee she re-read his words and traveled backward remembering, reliving and holding on to every moment she could.
Finally she understood the urgency of his need to feel completely secure and why he needed to know the answer to, “what would happen if…”
“ACM, MY OTHER MAN” pulls emotions from the heart, soul and mind. It’s funny, sad, even a little bit crazy, but very real to a West Virginia Hillbilly and “his nurse”.
This is one woman’s story of dealing with goodbye and a book for anyone who has ever lost a friend.
If you liked “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “Ghost”, you’ll love “ACM, MY OTHER MAN.”
"A warm, heart-felt story of a different kind of love between two of the most unlikely people you will ever meet. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll think about all the weirdo's in your life that you've met along the way.
Once you start the book it will be hard to put down."
~Andy Petro author of "Remembering The Light Through Prosetry."
