I have been following a trail the past couple of years - sort of like a sojourn or spirit journey towards finding answers.

I created the story line by thinking up a taboo relationship, one that would be shunned by the church. Not the typical love relationship between the preacher and a new woman or his son and a woman.

In truth, it all started while I was looking into a snow globe, picturing a young woman sitting in an old tree swing. Her feet were dangling in the air just above a rippling little creek that edged a dense, darkened forest. I wondered what she must be thinking, what her life was really like. She had such a sense of calm about her—happiness, peace, serenity.
