Ellen was born to suffer and watch those around her succumb to their misfortune. With the deaths of both of her natural parents, Ellen experiences more sadness, loss and tragedy than most people would endure during several lifetimes.

Johanna is a shut-in destined to endure a cycle of addiction and depression as she attempts to remember her life before her abduction. Shedding her former life, and being lost without ever claiming another, Johanna is forced outside of her zone of tolerated discomfort and directly into the middle of an ancient force of nature.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This novel, and its characters have been a part of my life for many years. As a young man, in my early twenties, I began drafting some character descriptions, but I put them away for many years (two decades). At the start of the pandemic, I pulled these ideas out of the "closet" and began writing. The early days of COVID set the tone for me, to begin drafting this story.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters have been loosely developed over the course of twenty years. It was the start of the pandemic that helped me "carve" out the true nature of each of my protagonists. The characters started to take on roles that I never expected, and I was very pleased with that!
Clayton and Azra stood shaken in the farmhouse’s kitchen, after Mr. and Mrs. Donovan finished their discussion about Ellen and their work to help her to salvation. They headed toward the church to greet the congregation before the service began. Azra was thinking about how she was going to continue to get to know Ellen.
She decided she would slow her work with Clayton and spend more time working with Ellen on her morning chores and her scripture recitations. Azra came with Clayton to Colorado to fulfill one purpose and now was the time to begin the transition to fulfill her key priority. She just needed to find a way to bring this up to him.
Clayton, Azra, and Ellen walked together to the barn for the service where everyone would meet the new visitors. Clayton was wearing a plain, dark-blue suit, Azra was in her cherry red dress, and Ellen donned the kelly green dress that was attractive but marred with the memories of her first experience in this renovated church. Since Ellen’s rite of sacrifice on the altar, she feared walking into the barn at all, even when there was no one else in the building, but she had no allowance for fear in this situation. Mother and Father saw fear as the most selfish form of weakness in children, and her daily punishments, and the service rituals, were all attempts to remove her fear.
