In this second installment of the Abarat, the Lord of Midnight and his creepiness of a grandmother are hell bent on creating dark days throughout the Islands, while war is imminent.

This Young Adult Fantasy translates very nicely for readers who are no longer young. The journey is not an effort. It slides along the edge with ease. And Barker never assumes you are ignorant of such matters. Difficult to say more without spoilers. Just know this, if you are going to read these books – do so with the intent to run-away for a while, knowing full well that this is a fantastical place with fantastical beings. After all, this is a fantasy.

Clive Barker creates his own artwork then writes the book, and as the artwork grows so does the story. I’ve taken a few photographs of some of the characters who have kept my company these nights, some wonderful and endearing; others not so much. So enjoy looking at them, while I bask in the memory of those who have become my friends.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
