Introspection–this place invites it. I’ve never allowed myself the time to pause and get to know myself. My father taught me it was weak. Focus on the prize–eyes off yourself. The goal matters. You are just the instrument to get you there.
Here… Is this what that goal was and I never knew it? The peaks above, the trees that stand tall beside me as if my own personal bodyguards.
I am alive–maybe for the first time in my life–and I think it’s because I’m dead.
Review from an advance reader:
Highlands follows the story of Tony, who is thrust from our world into a new reality. After falling asleep in Los Angeles, he awakens the next morning in Highlands; up in the snowy mountains, freezing… The Highlanders who find him have never heard of Los Angeles, or California for that matter. Follow the story of Tony as he learns to adjust in his new life. Chautona weaves an intriguing tale as Tony builds new relationships and learns to see himself and the world around him as God intended – a masterpiece in the tapestry of God’s creation. ~Emily
Another advance reader has this to say:
I love how Chautona’s books are filled with characters that seem so real you are sure you’ve met them somewhere! This is also true with her newest book, Highlands! Tony and his struggles feel so real, I’ve found myself feeling sorry for him, rooting for him, and even feeling annoyed at him! This story follows Tony as he works to figure out how he ended up in a strange place, and along the way, attempts to sort out his past… his journey has prompted me to rethink the way I approach some of life’s circumstances, and the uniqueness of how God has created us. ~Karin
