What Is Bread About?

The problem with evil is the inevitability of its arrival. Nearly every person alive will, at some point, suffer. What if there was a way for the restorative power of grace and redemption to be just as certain?

Bread invites you to look at that idea as a reality. We follow the life of a lonely and compromised protagonist named Caleb who, against all odds, embarks on a surprising and unpredictable journey of discovery, and in the process, determines if he has a destiny to fulfill. He wants to find out if Redemption, Grace and Love are real or just words.

Everything that happens to him is played out in a mythical city called Solé, where life has handed him a horrifying problem. He has no idea how he may have contributed to its claim on his life. His situation is dire. The loneliness he feels has become tangible; a growing, serpentine form located in his torso is reminding him of his impending psychological and spiritual extinction.

That’s where his learning curve begins. He finally understands that the restoration he needs must come from a source greater than himself.  Sound familiar?

The mythical city of Solé is the realm where Caleb, and the reader, experience the unambiguous personal failures and achievements a life can have. Evil and loss, undying true love and hope, are juxtaposed against an unseen realm of competing forces of good and evil, determined to gain ultimate control of human souls, or release them to divine inheritance. Like life, the story is impossible to predict from one page to the next. Readers have told me that reading Bread was an emotional experience. Writing it was as well.

My hope is that Bread, crafted as an unpredictable and entertaining story, will also reveal truths embedded in its pages, and offer each reader the wonder of their own life’s potential.
