Read full description of the books Beyond The Pond:NOTHING IS EVER WHAT IT SEEMS
Beyond The Pond takes the young reader on a journey back in time from the Indian Legend of the Cedar, to the almost near tragedy that changed Cathryn Price's life forever. Today, Cathryn's great granddaughter, Linda, and her nine year old son, Brady, live in Cathryn's old Victorian home. Brady struggles with changes in his life and finds bringing back his great grandmother's old pond helps to distract him from his own real life tragedies. What he doesn't know is that the pond and Cedar are in danger due to night prowlers and a Texas drought. The answer is for Olivia, a new fish, to leave the pond in search of a hidden spring and its inhabitants to save the legendary Cedar. And so, a new journey begins deep beneath the earth through an ancient passageway.
Olivia's adventure not only encounters danger, but she discovers a secret kept safe by Brady's grandmother for over 50 years.
Brady learns to cope with embarrassment and defeat, and finds that God has a plan for him after all.
Beyond The Pond presents an interesting collection of characters, including one who has been around since The Beginning. The gospel message is explained in a simple truth between the most unlikely couple.
Read information about the authorThe inspiration to write Beyond The Pond came from actual events and visitors to my own backyard pond. When my first grandson was born, I wanted to pass along the secrets of Pinecone Pond to him. After all, I already had most of my characters -- I just gave them voices on a page.
I wanted to incorporate a Christian message into the story, so the gospel is discussed between several of the characters, including one who has been around since The Beginning.
My background comes from 25 years of writing detailed insurance investigation reports based on interviews with claimants, insureds and witnesses about their car accidents, work injuries or home burglaries. I finally decided to take the "frog leap" from writing fact to fiction in Beyond the Pond. It was fun and challenging to make this change, and I found the skills I learned as an investigator really helped in describing characters and scenes in the book.
