Young-Adult Christian Fantasy Novel Offers Hope, Inspiration for Bullied and Troubled TeensGAINESVILLE, Fla., March 7, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- For every child who struggles with doubt, for every kid who has been bullied, for every teen who comes from a broken home, and for every young adult who longs to be understood -- there is hope.
Best-selling author Lorilyn Roberts shares once again the power of redemption in this Christian coming-of-age novel. Written in first-person, "Seventh Dimension - The Door" reads as a first-hand account by a young girl, Shale Snyder, who is treated unfairly by her family, school, and classmates. Fear distorts her sense of self-worth and she is enveloped with guilt because of a secret from her past.
While on a sojourn similar to Christian in "Pilgrim's Progress," Shale discovers talking animals and a handsome young man with whom she falls in love. Her journey is one of self-discovery as she battles personal demons, family conflict, wicked underlings, and comes face-to-face with a personal decision she must make -- bound up in the king she meets in first century Israel.
"I spent two years developing the plot," says Roberts, "as part of my Masters in Creative Writing. I love the classics, particularly books by Charles Dickens, Fydor Dostoevsky, Emily Bronte, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. I hoped to provide an entertaining story that would evoke deep spiritual longing." Roberts adds, "I was a troubled child from a broken home on the road to juvenile delinquency -- until I met the king."
