A much more menacing threat is coming.

She endured the hardships of not being accepted in school or in the community and then one day she realized that she was a stranger in her own family.

Eventually she was forced to change, or become, a good actor in order to survive to adulthood.

Later in life, thousands of miles away, she encountered even greater challenges than she had experienced in the place from which she had escaped Relative power governed the world of her teens. A turn to politics showed her another world of falsehoods. Greed, money, and the search for truth ruled her life as an adult.

ONE WOMAN’S SEARCH FOR LIGHT IN AN AGE OF GROWING DARKNESS Jessica was a talented, successful, sought-after artist and actress. So why was she drowning in depression and despair? When she was able to capture the color and design of God’s beautiful world with paint and brush, her joy was indescribable — but short-lived. She would find herself suddenly dashed into a dark hole of loneliness and depression. Despite her God-given gifts, “I was lost in a world of darkness of my own creation,” she writes. An Artist’s Palette, From Dark to Light, is the moving story of one woman’s journey from suicidal thoughts to sublime happiness. By developing an intimate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, Jessica was born again — and finally able to move from a dark, destructive existence to a productive life, full of joy and light.

"Beautiful and wise, [this] is a gem of a book." --Adam Gidwitz, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Inquisitor's Tale Just right for fans of Pam Muñoz Ryan, this story of moving out and moving on is a touching portrayal of the experience of leaving one's home country and making new friends--sometimes where least expected. Eleven-year-old Carolina's summer--and life as she knows it--is upended when Papi loses his job, and she and her family must move from Puerto Rico to her Tía Cuca and Uncle Porter's house in upstate New York. Now Carolina must attend Silver Meadows camp, where her bossy older cousin Gabriela rules the social scene. Just as Carolina worries she'll have to spend the entire summer in Gabriela's shadow, she makes a friend of her own in Jennifer, a fellow artist. Carolina gets another welcome surprise when she stumbles upon a long-abandoned cottage in the woods near the campsite and immediately sees its potential as a creative haven for making art. There, with Jennifer, Carolina begins to reclaim the parts of the life she loved in Puerto Rico and forget about how her relationship with Mami has changed and how distant Papi has become. But when the future of Silver Meadows and the cottage is thrown into jeopardy, Carolina and--to everyone's surprise--Gabriela come up with a plan to save them. Will it work? "A warm depiction of family and of standing up for what you believe in."--Kirkus "An introspective, character-driven tale that will appeal to artists, introverts, or any child who has felt like an outsider."--SLJ "With comforting warmth and gentle realism, this is a hopeful exploration of what home means."--The Bulletin
