Seraphim – by Mary M. Forbes

This story is not a romance although there are romantic elements in the book.  It is a story of abuse and overcoming grief.  It is a fiction work in progress.

My goal is to help women understand there is always hope and peace at the end of a dark tunnel, provided we are willing to take control of our own lives.  I understand the obstacles including financial or low self-esteem that make this seem impossible.  Everyone deserves happiness in their life.

“Every tomorrow has two handles.  We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.”

–          Henry Ward Beecher

In the winds of time, the past is abstract, as though incidents long ago are a dream.  But sometimes in the darkness of fear, the past feels like yesterday, tangible and rift with raw  emotions.

Today, the past is the present for Delaney Salem.

The fear and confusion she experienced thirteen years ago comes back intensified a hundred-fold.  Why would God, if there was a God, do this to her?  For a short time, in her childhood, she had believed that good could conquer evil.  It was fleeting thought, wafted away in the winds.  She has only experienced the power of evil with no relief.

Delaney Salem wants to escape her marriage, but she fears her husband’s power as a Sheriff. She feels abandoned by her religion considering the hardships she is faced with for no apparent reason. She has no money, no skills and no one to help.

The unthinkable  happens when her daughter is violated by the same monster abusing her. Delaney knows she has no other choice but to run. She accepts there is no God and there are no Guardian Angels. She must leave using only her own questionable ingenuity.

A white, mystical horse named Seraphim comes to her when all seems lost. Delaney is confused, believing she is insane like so many people say. Is Seraphim her Guardian Angel or a figment of her imagination? Does she dare believe?

Follow Delaney’s struggle to find hope and happiness in her bleak world.

Seraphim – Coming in the spring of 2013

The name seraphim clearly indicates their ceaseless and eternal revolution about Divine Principles, their heat and keenness, the exuberance of their intense, perpetual, tireless activity, and their elevative and energetic assimilation of those below, kindling them and firing them to their own heat, and wholly purifying them by a burning and all-consuming flame; and by the unhidden, unquenchable, changeless, radiant and enlightening power, dispelling and destroying the shadows of darkness”
