Art in words, his heart in words, wrapping us warm in Truth.
And oh, the adventure! It didn't hurt, either, that our names were in the story.
He read it when there were only six of us giggling, wiggling kids. Then seven, then eight, then nine.
It is twenty some odd years later, and I read it with new eyes.
A young boy, thirteen, now almost a man, a "Walker in the Light". He has to save his brother and sister(that would be me), who were deceived by an angel of light, "Seraph". He is aided by his beautiful and brave german shepherd named Gallant(I always wanted a dog like this!), and Emberoks. What is an Emberok?
This is a beautiful story for the young, and the young at heart!
I am so proud of you, Dad!! You did it!!
***Did I mention my brother built the website, and the art on the paperback version of the book was done by my 15 year old Sister and my Aunt(my Dad's sister-Emberoks were her sculpted creations that fed my Dad's imagination that grew into this book!)?***
I look forward to reading this story to my kiddos when they are a little older!
