TUCSON, Ariz., July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Mel Greenberg's debut novel, "Running With Our Eyes Closed," is a love story about a couple experiencing empty nest syndrome. With the increased awareness in mental health issues, the book provides resources for parents going through this dramatic change.

"Four years ago I became an empty nester," said author Mel Greenberg. "My full time job walked out the door and I struggled to find my voice and direction. I discovered that I was not alone, and it wasn't only a female issue. Fathers also struggle with their new roles and feelings."

Dr. Sana Barada, psychologist and addiction specialist, agrees. "Some women believe that their failure to achieve happiness and success is because they think that, by raising kids and staying next to them until they become independent, they are missing so much in real life."

"Running With Our Eyes Closed" is the story of Dallas socialite Samantha, and her husband Michael. With three children now living on their own, she's prepared to leave her life behind. Michael has secrets and his own agenda that could change their lives forever. Nothing is quite what they'd imagined it to be. Over seven days in Italy, they attempt to define their new roles as a couple and as individuals.

The book will be available today, and a sneak preview is available on the website. Readers are already praising it. Chris Soldo, award-winning producer and director, said, "Ms. Greenberg takes the 'where do we go from here' life dilemma and sets it in a sexy, contemporary setting with characters who are heartbreaking, inspiring, and thoroughly relatable." A portion of proceeds from the book sales will be donated to mental health and wellness charities.
