Confessions of a Lonely Soul

A young man dies of AIDS and leaves behind a mysterious videotape for his family that exposes his tormented life of secrets and guilt in a confession from beyond the grave.

DeMarco Reid left a videotape for his family to play during his funeral, but his family doesn't realize they are in for the shock of their lives. In it, DeMarco appears in a pre-recorded message to admit the many secrets that tore his life apart, including why his wife committed suicide, how he contracted HIV, his connection to a murder, and ultimately, his quest for meaning in life.

But there are two sides to every story. Is DeMarco's tell-all actually true, or are there even more shocking secrets threatening to shake this family to its foundations?

With HIV an ever-increasing threat in the African-American community, this story approaches the topic with both refreshing candor and compassion. Confessions of a Lonely Soul reminds readers of the insidious danger of keeping secrets, and the cost of living a double-life to deceive those you love the most. In the end, are any secrets worth dying to keep?
