“I normally do not read male authors but someone recommended [Barclay] and all I can say to her is thank you.”
Fresh Fiction

With his powerfully emotional debut, If Wishes Were Horses, author Robert Barclay immediately joined the ranks of Nicholas Sparks, Richard Paul Evans, and Robert James Waller. His second novel of love and hope, More Than Words Can Say, only confirms his place among them. A profoundly moving multi-generational family story centered around a woman’s return to her late grandmother’s lake cottage and the long-buried secrets she uncovers there, More Than Words Can Say will linger long in the heart and memory.

Robert Barclay enjoyed a successful career in business, also serving as chairman of his industry-related consulting group. After selling his business and moving from upstate New York to south Florida, (and with some rather successful prodding by his wife), he was able to finally devote his full attention to something he had always wanted to do-writing a book. When he isn't writing, he enjoys weightlifting, Shotokan Karate, and going to the beach to do absolutely nothing.
