Uplight Books is releasing Forrest Tales Book I: The Secret of the Labyrinth on July 1, 2006. This is written as a story within a story as Uncle How relates the tale of Edward Forrest to his nephew.
“Spending his days surviving the bullies at school, and his afternoons reading in the library, Edward Forrest knows the stings life can inflict. What he doesn’t know, is that a place exists that can teach him to reach into his mind and find a power he never knew existed. Under the all-seeing eye of the Oracle, Edward becomes a seeker...of light, of knowledge, of greatness. But not everyone is anxious to see him succeed. Uncle How tells his nephew this gripping tale--but it seems to reach out to David in a very real way. It is just a story—isn’t it? You decide.”
Early reviews indicate this book series is a hit with children and reviewers alike. Without preaching, each of the four planned installments deliver a story about real life issues young people deal with in a hectic world. The first book deals with learning to forgive oneself after making bad choices.
“Sometimes in the process of seeking forgiveness for the mistakes we make, we forget the last step. We need to forgive ourselves, too. The story also illustrates for us too, that life experiences make us who we are. We need to embrace those experiences that stretch us to our limits and not continually dwell on our regrets; the “what ifs” in life.
“Life is filled with twists and turns, just like the Great Labyrinth. We need to appreciate those opportunities.”
The story is fast-paced and filled with fantasy and adventure, without beasts, witches or wizards.
Books should not only be entertaining, but provide wisdom to help young people on the difficult journey to “becoming.”
