Campsite Six by Jan Fallon, a speculative/suspense Christian-themed novel | 71,000 Words
Chapter One – Transit
The city stood erect and imposing. Crowds walled within its maze moved in streams of color and shadow, with an urban pulse coursing through each running, rattling member.
Evie was one of them.
Book Quote #5
The simple truth is this folks, God loves you. Just like he loves our friends who ‘gave the green beans’ and those who ‘get the green beans.’ When we say God has no favorites, it doesn’t mean no one gets special attention. Nope. It means everyone gets special attention.
Book Quote #1
He sniffed a ball of aluminum foil smelling of bacon before snorting off to other hunting grounds. As he left, his sharp-clawed paw pressed a footprint in a piece of dusty paper, blown off the picnic table, damp drops dimpling it to the ground. You could still make out the words Evie had written between his ragged tears.
Book Quote #2
Rolling like a steely pinball down the slope, Evania bounced off bumpers made of trees and rocks with her eyes glued toward the diminishing horizon. She landed soundly – once exhausted flippers made their last flap to hurl her upward, to the water’s edge.
Book Quote #3
Holly turned to find the brutal voice, locked eyes with him in a horrified gaping stare, then unleashed a slap just as brutal across his young, ignorant face. Norm rushed to catch her mid-faint, then lead her with Sandy to the Station House.
Book Quote #4
He laid on the stone floor of the Enclave, lanky and floppish. So much dead weight even his strongest cohort back on the fields would strain to lift him. He knew nothing of fear or worry until now. And because he had no words or understanding for them, the anxiety they produced in an earthly person was multiplied by his innocence.
