New York, NY, December 06, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Followers of different religions throughout the world have held their ideals close for thousands of years, with little change in the belief systems and practices. But what if everything you knew about your religion was wrong?

Cynthia Derosier’s debut romantic novel, Secret of the Sands, follows two people thrown together as they struggle to unveil an ancient mystery and fulfill a 65,000-year-old prophecy. Along the way they must learn to stop fighting fate and give in to the love that is waiting for them

Among the truths revealed by the pair in Secret of the Sands is the destruction of religion as we know it. Derosier explores a world where Jesus Christ was actually an alien.

“In Secret of the Sands the Easter resurrection is explained because it’s revealed that Jesus Christ can't die, his body disappeared because he went home,” says Derosier. “But he’s not gone forever, he’ll return.”

Secret of the Sands is a thought-provoking love story unlike any told before. Derosier skillfully weaves together a story of history, myths, religion and science that leaves the reader experiencing a whole range of emotions. Readers will come away questioning everything they’ve known about the world and their own relationships in it.
