Christian fantasy fiction so well written it could be classified as Literary fiction! Check it out at:
Jeru’s quest for redemption leads him to seek the Purple Morrow. What he actually discovers will change more than just his life, forever.
Ten years have passed since the Rover army moved into the Southernlands, nearly decimating the peaceful people who live there. That day, Jeru was saved from certain death but his life would be changed. Unable to forgive himself for past mistakes, he decides to seek the Purple Morrow, a rare butterfly rumoured to have the power to change a man’s life.
Kelen, a Rover Commander, is on a quest of his own. Tasked with the duty of conquering the Southernlands, as well as a secondary mission from his father, he enters the South. But the foreign land is having a strange effect him, drudging up old memories and making him question his duty. The only thing guiding him along the dark road to truth, is the secret object he carries with him.
It is up to Jeru to save the Southernlands from the Rovers, but Kelen, his mortal enemy, stands in his way. As the tangled webs of their lives draw them together, Jeru’s connection to the Purple Morrow is revealed, unlocking his true destiny at last.
Wow. That might be the best first line I have ever read. I loved the first sentence. I think I read it three times! Everything that comes after does not disappoint either. You have a gift for making the reader fall in love with your characters within a very short time, making the tragedy that befalls them all the more heart wrenching. You have an amazing gift for imagery and your smooth style and genuine dialogue makes this story a great read. Thanks so much for the opportunity to take a look at it. High stars and the best of luck with this one.~ C.G. Harris

I am an Educator, Award Winning Christian Author, Freelance Writer & Blogger,Youth mentor, Bible Teacher, and TREK AWANA director. Teaching provides an opportunity for me to engage in continual learning and growth on many levels. I work for my students not only to master the course material but to give them the indispensable advantage of having a growth mindset. This mindset has been stripped from many of our students; yet this is the undisputed secret ingredient for their success in the world outside of my classroom. I strive to be a globally connected educator. With my #LatinoEd #Edublog I seek (as J. Updike says) "to unblock the traffic jam" in the minds of my students and peers. In this way, long after they have left my classroom and they encounter a world that will try (and many times succeed) in knocking them down and telling them they "can't," they will bounce right back up, and with an intrinsic confidence say, "Watch me. Watch me make a difference!" It is then I will feel that I too have made a difference.
