“Lane Steen”: an emotionally heartwarming look into a past that ends up changing the future. “Lane Steen” is the creation of published author, Candace West, who was born in Mississippi, and grew up in Arkansas where she graduated from the University of Arkansas at Monticello. West started writing at the age of twelve, and has published short stories, poems, and church plays. “Lane Steen” is her first novel.

West shares this passage: “I jerked awake. With a trembling hand, I wiped the cold sweat from my forehead. Once more the dream had come, and it was always the same. A man’s voice sang while a violin played the notes softly. His face, as usual, was lost in the shadows. No matter how hard I tried to discover his features I always failed. Casting it aside, I closed my eyes once more. As I tried to catch a few more minutes of shut-eye, the early morning sunlight gently stroked my eyelids. I stretched and turned over. It was horribly cold! The scratchy, thin quilt that covered me did little to warm my shivering form. For a moment, coldness unlike any winter day in the Ozarks pierced my soul. It is his fault—his fault!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Candace West’s exceptionally well written book shows that through all of life’s heartaches one can still find purpose worth fighting for. With the new-found love of family from her past, Lane must learn to cast aside her hatred for her father so she can one day learn to accept God’s calling.
