Book Description

Oct. 30 2004 1881917150 978-1881917151 Har/Com
Locket is an allegory, reminiscent of Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince—two marvelous tales reaching adult and child alike. Locket is set in the Middle Ages—which turns out to have been a world, while less advanced, differing not much from our own. The book vividly portrays the emotional impact divorce has on a Little Princess whose world is shattered by it; what she does to survive that; and the ensuing path she takes to find a fuller and happier adult life.

There are no villains in Locket, only unintended circumstances that spin a tragic web—a web that, in time, turns a well-loved and loving child into a beautiful woman; but one whose heart is frozen hard by the fear and guilt brought on by her parents’ separation. How that change comes to pass makes for an unexpected and compelling ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful allegory Dec 7 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Beyond The Locket: Surviving Parental Separation is a novel for young adults set in the Middle Ages world, yet encompassing a reality that is all too frequent in the modern world. It deals with the painful theme of parental separation, and a girl who must survive, cope, and find a path that will bring her to a happy adult life in spite of the rift between her parents. There are no villains in Beyond The Locket; only hard choices and sad misfortune to be overcome. A powerful allegory, especially recommended reading for families in counseling or otherwise dealing with the hardship of divorce.
