Elizabeth Newton invites readers back on the time and space traveling steam engine for the next chapter in the Christian-themed sci-fi series, “Train Flight: The Sanctuary” (published by Trafford Publishing).
“’Train Flight’ is a unique blend of science-fiction and Christian morals and values,” says Newton of the series. “It is also an odd combination of all my favourite things: science-fiction, space and time travel, God’s creation and God Himself, steam trains, adventure, drama, possibly a hint of romance and the Beatles.”
Evelyn Bamford, Evie to her friends, thought she was going to be taking a relaxing holiday. While the Captain and Paulo Vistar pilot the space-and-time travelling steam engine, Evie is enticed into a sinister trap and disappears before the Captain and Paulo’s eyes, and it’s up to them to find her. But how can they find her in a place that doesn’t seem to exist?
Meanwhile, Evie finds herself in a remote and beautiful little village called The Sanctuary, but something about it feels disturbing to her. She, however, seems to be the only one that notices. What dark secret is lurking beneath the beautiful exterior of the seemingly perfect sanctuary?
An excerpt from “Train Flight”:
“Her voice was smooth and velvety–like she was trying to calm a spooked horse. She put her hand up to her glasses and slowly slipped them off the end of her nose.
The worried woman continued. ‘Sometimes I wish it could all just go away. For all of it to just sort itself out without me having to do anything.’
‘Or even... escape it all. Get away,’ said the consultant.”
The “Train Flight” series has created engaging and dimensional characters that readers will rally behind. Of Evie, Newton says, “She potentially represents many young teens going through the hardships and mundaneness of school in that desperate desire to fit in, stand out, do something rebellious, not get in trouble. She is unsure about her faith she’s been brought up in and her adventures on the Train help her realize who she is and that she is special, unique and significant just by being herself.”
