In her 2012 novel “Child of Far Away” (published by Trafford Publishing), which will be featured in the 2014 Bologna Children's Book Fair on March 24-27, F. C. Young offers readers a thoughtful fantasy which deftly balances outlandish fantasy with realism. Through this pairing of the outrageous and the realistic, Young hopes to inspire readers to look at their world in a new way, imagining what the fanciful secrets the ordinary things in life – simple things like trees – may hold.
“‘Child of Far Away’ takes place on the newly found planet of Florabal,” explains Young. “A new colony is established on an island and the heroine, Cassie, discovers that the plants and animals of her new world are intelligent and need her help to confront an old enemy that will cause the deaths of everyone on the planet.”
Young’s story takes readers to this new planet as Cassie and the children of Earth learn their way around the strange new world. It follows them along the way as they meet new and intelligent life forms, learning to cooperate with them and work toward a common goal. It is the journey of how the children of Earth become the children of Florabal.
“‘Child of Far Away’ is an uplifting story of renewal and fantasy,” says Young. “It gives the reader a chance to leave the worries of this world and walk a new land with very different concerns.”
Young uses her writing to do more than just entertain. To her, novels afford authors the opportunity to impart powerful messages. With “Child of Far Away,” she wants readers to come away with one simple, yet significant lesson. Summing up the overall message of the book, she says, “Be good to everyone and everything.”
