This book acknowledges the positive impact of God in our lives and how we are blessed in so many ways as He divinely directs our daily walk
Longwood, FL (Vocus) July 27, 2010
Marimoor may be a quaint, semi-rural village nestled just beyond the picturesque and lush setting of Kellanord Valley, but its citizens are anything but ordinary. Little do these Marimoorians know that they are literally one dream away from catastrophe. Legends abound of a civilization of tiny creatures known as Liverwurts. During one Christmas season, both civilizations are turned upside down when benevolent matters of the heart are overthrown by the evils of pride and rebellion. Only true repentance and faith in action can overturn the adversity that grips both worlds. Within the pages of author Gary L. Carmichael’s riveting work of fantasy, Liverwurt Fables ($20.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-274-7), readers will find an entertaining tale that teaches a lesson about family, faith, and friendship.
“This book acknowledges the positive impact of God in our lives and how we are blessed in so many ways as He divinely directs our daily walk,” the author says. “My hope is that this book will make readers laugh, reminisce, and possibly shed a tear as they relate to the lives of the story.”
Carmichael, who has been active in the prayer ministry and other areas of service in his local church, believes that there are far too many destructive influences throughout society that negatively impact this nation’s youth and families. “Maybe this novel will become a refreshing alternative,” he says. “I penned this novel—at times—under great emotional anguish, and I hope that others who can relate to these circumstances can gain strength and hope from the truths within its pages.”
