Syosset High School alum Judith Hill recently released The Equation, a novel inspired by the north shore of Long Island, about a teacher who falls madly in love with a student.
Sarah Thompson was stunningly beautiful, compassionate, and unblemished. The only thing she wasn’t was 18. Her talent was writing, her nemesis—math. Enter Travis Hall—highly disciplined and accustomed to getting what he wanted.
A master at math, Travis comes to teach at Sarah’s high school in 1962 after suffering a life altering event. His plan hadn’t anticipated Sarah, whose aqua blue eyes seduce him, but whose open heart teaches him how to love. During tutoring sessions their mutual attraction grows into admiration overcoming their opposite natures.
Passions simmer while their forbidden love is left unspoken taking each of them on a journey of the heart. As the year ends, Sarah remains off limits, the only prize he can’t claim—though that doesn’t mean that he can let her go. The Equation chronicles a compelling tale of love that spans the decades, from Long Island to the great American Southwest.
The book is available on Amazon in both paperback and e-book format. —Tribune Staff
