Six Sentence Sunday

We continue this week with Laura, Emily, Brian and Nick's story with a snippet from my paranormal romance Four Winds Of Heaven from Sugar and Spice Press.

 Could the actions of a few brave souls have saved us all? Emily, Laura, Brian and Nick are brought together in 1999 by a series of supernatural phenomena. Then they learn that, in 1917, three children in the Portuguese town of Fatima prophesied that, at the end of the millennium, four people would have to face Satan in an apocalyptic battle. At a time when many people are questioning religion and its place in the world, Four Winds of Heaven offers a new slant on what we believe we know about good and evil and our abilities to face both within ourselves.

Emily stared back up at the statue. No, nothing like her dream. There had been a vitality in the eyes of the woman in her dream that no artist could possibly capture. A knowledge born not only of the love the will of
God had brought her, but of the pain and cruelty that will had burned into Mary‟s soul. A duality she had never seen in any painting. In her dream Mary had been a woman sharing hope and knowledge, not a saint spreading fortune-cookie wisdom.

Wow, that must have been quite a dream!

I love the impact the dream had on her, and I love her voice in this piece. Great job!

I love that you've touched on Mary's suffering. She's so often seen as an afterthought, but she really does represent the dichotomy of motherhood (suffering and joy). Thanks for touching on something that, I think, makes her one of the most interesting characters in the Bible.

That was intense. The dream gave her a more definitive insight.
