"The Boy Who Wanted Love" is set in a small town on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Lucia named Soufriere. The story is about a woman who gets raped by a family friend and as a result, becomes pregnant with his child. Because of her Catholic faith, she decides to not have an abortion. Instead, she looks upon her son, Samson, with disdain. She eventually marries a firefighter who treats her son with love and respect, as if Samson is his own. During her marriage, she befriends a young man who is entering the priesthood, causing havoc in her marriage and her extended family. She ultimately begins loving Samson, only after the young priest intervenes with a secret. But does the love for her son come too late and at too great a price? 


Walter Mathurin was born in 1973 on the island of St. Lucia and moved to New York in 1988 where he attended high school. He holds a Tourism and Hospitality degree from The City University of New York and sometime in the near future, plans to return to school to pursue a Psychology degree. Although he’s been writing short stories for about fifteen years, he has never found the courage to save his work until three years ago, when he wrote his first full novel. At forty years-old, he is emotionally and mentally ready to climb new hills and hopes to be a prominent writer in the future. He believes that with his new now-developed determination, he will be able to successfully complete many other manuscripts. He will add energy, ambition, and most importantly, a risk-taking attitude to his writing.X
