Item description for A Broken Melody by Ralph Filicchia...
He had it all, the sound, the vocal range, youth, and the stage presence to go all the way to the top. But he never reached the top because he wanted it all too fast. Recklessly he destroyed his God-given gift in a foolish pursuit to have it all before he was ready to handle the responsibility.
Applause was the music that made him sing...until the day his extraordinary voice disappeared, and rising star Royce Westfield plummeted to the bottom of the heap. A has-been at 23. Washed out, washed up. Finished.
What do you do when the lights go out? Royce defied his family, left his friends, dropped out of school, and walked out on his Christian girlfriend, the only one who ever really mattered...all for the dream of stardom only an arm's length away. He also left behind the discipline, self-control and patience that could have transformed his natural talent into a superb and lasting gift.
Devastated, he began to hide from life. Bitterness overtook him...until his encounter with an army chaplain who introduced him to Jesus Christ, who then changed his outlook and life.
Now only one question remained: Does God ever give losers a second chance?

He has little respect for Political Correctness and its various offshoots, considering them a cheap attempt at liberal censorship and the muzzling of free speech and the public expression and preaching of Christianity. He is 76 years old and holds a Bachelor of Theology degree. He says this book is the result of many years of listening, debating, reasoning, and trying to rightly divide the word of truth.
