Christian Sci-fi that shares the struggle between the beleaguered Mountain People and the biased Valley People.

We meet the prophet, Chi-hay-su and his youth disciple from the well to do community, Mattpaul , as faith inspires change in this riveting drama. They dare to dream of a better world.

The Chest of Visions: New Pathways 'cross Broken Highways


It is here ... the second book in the Chest of Visions Series, subtitled: New Pathways 'cross Broken Highways begins where the award winning book one (Secrets of Caperston) left off. Earth youth, Alex, daring to dream,  travels down a wormhole to meet with youth from Caperston that he has been corresponding with. He becomes an integral part of an 18 month drama in Caperston while life, home at earth, must deal with tragedies that call him to return. But first he has a role to play in the evolving struggle between the well to do Valley people and the looked down upon Mountain people. Twists and turns lead to an unanticipated outcome as faith and hope prevail but not without hardship.

Like the original this was an award winner in the annual Readers Favorite contest.
