Seventh Dimension - The Door Offers Hope, Inspiration for Bullied and Troubled Teens

GAINESVILLE, Fla., May 23, 2013 -- 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 Master of Arts 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."

From May 23 through May 31, Roberts is offering the Kindle version of Seventh Dimension - The Door for 99 cents on Amazon at:
