About the book
A brief description
Quick Chapter Menu
Scott Loader is sent on a ten day mission from Los Angeles to Los Alamos, New Mexico. An offering of his own volition, this innocuous act of generosity mushrooms far beyond what he was led to believe it would.
In the birthplace of the Atomic Bomb, the young man will face his own demons in the worst of conditions that will take him dangerously out of his element and comfort zone. Ultimately, he has to befriend and manage those demons in order to complete his mission as he encounters caldera witches, suicidal scientists, alien abductees, an eccentric Italian priest, and the psychotic killer that could determine his fate.
In the unmatched beauty of New Mexico and its stunning natural light, Scott faces the fallout of failed relationships, regrets, and recriminations of his young life. When it all explodes, his journey becomes a quest for grace, commitment, and redemption in order to escape the resulting fallout and radiation - a full seventy days later.
Many of the events in this fictional account of a time in 2006 when I was sent on a journey actually happened and changed me forever - in a good way. But it was a trial, for sure.
The reading should flow pretty well and initial comments have been very positive, I’m blessed to report. Thank you again for taking the time to read this - on a digital device, no less - and to leave constructive comments to make this tale even better.
