Description

Anne Sinclair works hard to make the world a better place-especially for children. She is a child protection worker whose job isn't her only battle. Trying, like the rest of us, to find her place in the world and give meaning to her life, she struggles with her faith, her family legacy, loss and grief, her religious and spiritual heritage, and the demons of her personal past. Others in her life are also wrestling with crises of faith: faith in their fellow humans, faith in a social system meant to protect, faith in religion meant to guide. They cannot know that their individual paths will cross and move them toward a troubling, collective Truth-led by Grace. Help is on the way but it will come in a way that none of them can possibly imagine.show more

About Christine Enking

About Us (Written by Christine) In 1986 when my life was at a crossroads, I met Mark through an outreach prevention program called Partners In Prevention. He and his partners were instrumental in the turn my life eventually took. The people I met and the support I received from those involved in Partners provided me with the foundation I needed in order to work through the unresolved issues from my past. After surviving that initial process of confronting, dealing with, and healing from those issues, I felt like I wanted to give back. After receiving my masters and working for several years as a Child Protection Social Worker, I started to think of how I wanted to give back. The idea of writing a book seemed to be the option that most appealed to me. The characters and plot of the book began formulating in my mind and, in 1999 I finally sat down at my computer and started writing the book. I drew my inspiration from my own story, my education, and my professional experiences. I didn't realize how cathartic the experience would be for me. I knew I was on the right track and that it was important for me to finish the book. However, I hit a wall. Although I could envision all of the characters and the storyline, I didn't feel that I could do the project alone. I approached my very dear friend and writer, Mark. After I explained the book to him, he said he thought it was a great story with an important theme and terrific ending. He, too, brought his own perspective to the story and, between us, we were able to write a powerful narrative of human struggle. Mark tells me that he feels lucky to have been involved in writing this book. "While I do believe that my contributions have not been minor," Mark says, "I recognize that they are only contributions and that the essence of the book existed before I ever become involved." I say that I could not have finished the book without Mark. He has been a true friend and has been my support and inspiration both in writing this book and in life.show more
