Excerpt from ‘First Encounters’ a chapter from ‘Thieves Of Echoes’
“High up in the bough of an old pine was not the ideal place but, given the circumstances, for the two youngsters it was perhaps a better outcome than any alternative and their possible scenarios. The vicious weather conditions that had led to this particular scenario still sent shock waves as a harsh reminder to all that managed to prevail with a cool introduction to any new life, providing a stern test that would challenge their very survival.”
Foreword – excerpt
Although fictional the story contains many truths, where the characters are clearly fictional they do represent those that face real life struggles. It has a field where an imaginary line must be drawn, a line between fact and fiction and it has been left for the reader to decide where to place it.
