It is my desire for my readers of all ages to have the enjoyment of reading a tale of adventure that encompasses the beauty of Western Montana
Longwood, FL (Vocus) November 12, 2010
Melissa is a typical teenager. Her life revolves around her friends, getting the highest grades in her classes, spending time on her computer, and going to the mall. Her parents fear she is becoming too dependent on electronics and decide to send her to her aunt’s ranch in Western Montana. She searches the Internet for information on the area where her aunt lives and can only find pictures of a town that appears to be a ghost town. Aghast, she fears she is being excommunicated from society. The adventures waiting for her in Xulon Press author Catherine Campbell’s exhilarating new novel, Paradise ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-328-7), include wild horses and Indians, with unexpected twists and turns. They turn out to be better than any book she has read, and one is forever life-changing.
“It is my desire for my readers of all ages to have the enjoyment of reading a tale of adventure that encompasses the beauty of Western Montana,” the author says. “I want readers to learn that the Lord loves every one of us. No matter what our background, what we have done or not done, His love is never ending. He is full of second chances if only we accept them.”
Campbell, who has loved storytelling since she was a young girl, says that the idea for the book started long ago, when she was in high school. It wasn’t until years later that she was finally able to develop her gift into an art and discipline. Although the story has grown and changed a bit over the years, the horses have not. “Once thought by my friends to be a figment of my imagination, they exist; I have seen them,” she explains. “They are beautiful. I pray they remain free.”
