RebCat Creations proudly presents The Mugs Game, a novel written by Lorraine Flaherty and Catherine Dixon, read by Lorraine Flaherty.
The Mug's Game is a story about love, family and self-discovery with each character wanting something.
Zoe wants to find The One, Robert wants to avoid intimacy, Leo wants power and control, Francesca wants prestige, Joan wants to be fulfilled, Rose wants to be seen, George wants an easy life, Emily wants perfection, Miles wants status and prestige, Rick wants to be permanently high.
Through the different characters, we learn we are conditioned to play a Darwinian game of life's winners and losers. We pass the game down along the family line, unwitting, calling it "our fate" until we learn to exit The Game.
Through Robert and Zoe and their families, we learn how addiction to power, narcissism and greed cause suffering that repeats throughout lifetimes until the cycle is broken.
In this story, the boy does not save the girl, and the girl does not save the boy - they must save themselves. They are forced to face their assumptions and choose differently. When they do, surprising friendships blossom, bridges are built, new loves are born, and a new game begins, focusing on the power of love, not the love of power.
The novel was written between 2014 and 2018.--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/rebcatstory/message
