    I chose to call this literary fiction, although with a small push I might have called it a romance novel, for which I have no category because I never read them It has lots of flowery language and detailed descriptions of atmospheric settings Still, it s engaging, and although I almost abandoned it a couple of times, I muddled through and enjoyed the satisfying ending For different reasons, a Greek American woman loves both an American artist and a Greek archaeologist and must choose between the two men, an agonizing choice that takes up a large part of the book A secondary theme is the glories of traditional art versus the horrors of abstract modern art.

    An engaging read with strong characters I cared about even most of the villains as they face the truth that their choices determine their lives and happiness, and what choices will they make Set against a background of the art world and the conflict between modern nihilistic and ancient heroic art, it is a different, philosophical read that I found interesting and refreshing.

    Crosspoints was the first novel by Alexandra York, previously known for her non fiction writing Alexandra is founder and president of American Renaissance for the Twenty first Century and is a prolific writer.Crosspoints is a romance featuring young and beautiful Tara and her suitors Leon and Dimitrios The passion is intense as the two obsessive men set Tara as their target and do whatever they can to win her The romances are beyond what we normally see and experience in life however the writing is brilliant and inspirational for the reader The psychology of each character becomes complex and developed as the story moves forward.The characters travel between Greece, New York City, and Palm Beach as they work within the fields of archaeology, art dealing, classic art, and contemporary art Descriptions of the sunny seaside in Greece, the cosmopolitan lifestyles of New York, and the corrupt decadence of Palm Beach are excellent, allowing the reader to experience these glamorous settings.However this isn t just a ordinary love story The author includes deep themes regarding the free will that drives human motivation Part of this is about the art What is art all about What is the purpose How has the market for art been corrupted in recent decades And the same theme appears in the romances How are people making decisions What is driving them What do they want and what will they do to get it The characters reach for the best and won t surrender to failure.I highly recommend this novel to all readers Everyone will enjoy the author s powerful writing style And, fans of Ayn Rand in particular will enjoy the underlying themes of rational and independent decision making contrasted with the herd of sheep mentality all too prevalent in society today.John Christmas, author of Democracy Society
