About the Book
Over the years, a myriad of authors have used fiction as a vehicle through which they seek to illuminate major biblical events and deepen the understanding of the role of pivotal individuals within the Bible. However, never before have we seen events and characters portrayed as such through the eyes, ears and commentary of the Chosen Creatures of the Renewing who serve as witnesses to all that transpires. Part fantasy, part allegory, this imaginative tale will draw you into a world that will captivate and intrigue you. The Storyteller takes the reader through the purity and innocence of those days in the Garden, to the Fall of Man with its devastating effects, not only upon Adam and Eve, but upon all of creation, to the conflicts and struggles that engulf humanity as all find that they can no longer readily hear the voice of the Storyteller.
Come join the majestic Lion, Judah, as he leads the others to the hidden valley that stands outside the ruined Garden. There under the Great Tree, guarded by the Beautiful and Terrible Creature with the flaming sword, you will meet the delightful Honeybee, the gentle Lamb, the wise Ram, and the stubborn Donkey along with the others. See a world you had no idea existed come alive before your very eyes.
In opening this book, expect not simply to read, but instead to embark upon a journey that will take you into the heart, mind, and soul of the men, women, and creatures of the Storyteller’s hand. You will meet the Storyteller’s enemy, the Dark One, in the form of the beast who enters into a horrific battle with David. You will watch Noah and his wife and family share an experience never before documented in the annals of men. And you will fall in love with the animals and the understanding that they bring to life as it was and will be. Take a journey of hope that will lead you with certainty to your own place of Renewal.
About the Author
As a young girl growing up in the Panhandle of Northwest Florida, Kathy White developed an appreciation and understanding of both the beauty and power of words. She counts her mother, Barbara Rushing Scofield Wilson, a library/media specialist, and her grandmother, Louise Brooks Rushing, an English teacher from a small town in Alabama, with fostering in her a love of literature along with a sophisticated understanding of the finer points of grammar, rhetoric, and syntax. From the time that she was a little girl, Kathy was immersed in a family culture rich with fiction, poetry, and creative thinking. Even as a young girl, she had her own thesaurus and a dictionary that she kept close at hand. In fact, there was nothing better in Kathy’s mind than a summer day at the Big House on Cinco Bayou accompanied by a lengthy good book. After graduating from high school in DeFuniak Springs, Florida, Kathy attended Vanderbilt University where she graduated in three years with a B.A. in History and English. Temporarily pushing aside her dream of becoming a published author, Kathy became the mother of four children who now range in age from 35 to 27; has been married to her husband for 39 years; and is now the very proud grandmother of four grandchildren with a fifth on the way. While “The Storyteller” is her first published work, Kathy is excited about bringing her next book, including a sequel to “The Storyteller” to print.
