The Edge of Everywhen is a unique middle-grade novel that tells the story of Piper, a 13-year-old self-proclaimed book nerd whose world has been upended after the death of her mother. She, along with her autistic little brother, and best bud, Phoenix, cling to each other as they are forced to move a thousand miles away from everything familiar and live with their rich, estranged aunt.
Piper turns to the books on her shelf for comfort, but one unique book, Novus Fabula, offers true guidance as the omniscient narrator in the story. It watches them arrive at their aunt's home, with tired hearts and stones in their stomachs, and now its whispered voice must point the children to depend on the sovereignty of God during the most dire times as they await word of their missing father.
“What’s that you say? Books cannot speak? On the contrary, dear Reader. Quite the contrary. Books are one of the few things on this earth that truly speak, from the moment the first word is penned until the book’s last Reader has drawn their final breath.
Let me show you.”—Novus Fabula
The Edge of Everywhen is filled with mystery and intrigue as the story bridges the chasm between faith-based and fantasy kid-lit genres. It's a book-lover's book, carrying the reader through the adventure as Piper and Phoenix embark upon a life-changing journey, in search of their father and of a faith to call their own.
