Advance praise for Beyond the Forests of Yesteryears
"We meet pain, fear, shame, uncertainty, and insecurities in her stories. Sharon has captured those feelings in the allegories she shares with us. The journey of a thousand miles often begins with a single step-walk with her; this is a journey you won't want to miss!"
-Donna Messer, CEO, ConnectUs Communications, Canada
"A significant contribution to emerging literature using allegory as an instrument to persuade the reader toward a journey into the fight of good over evil. The author's stories are persuasive and compelling . . . this book will have an enormous appeal inside and outside the traditional Christian discipline."
-Reverend Anita L. Keith, author of Sacred Children, Sacred Teachers, Sacred Learning, For Our Children, Our Sacred Beings, and Rise Up!
Each spiritually fulfilling allegory in Beyond the Forests of Yesteryears addresses our essential needs and longings and explores a number of life experiences, from the desire for acceptance to the regret of unfulfilled dreams. Sharon Dumas's characters spring to life and tackle universal anxieties and fears. After searching for courage and hope throughout life's obstacles, they ultimately find the strength where it's always been: within.
