Overview

Can an orphan boy from an obscure planet make a galactic difference?

In a struggle to overcome the torments of his abusive brother, Delmar Eagleman must seek solace among the stars of the Galactic Axia in this adventure novel, Escape to Destiny. In search of a new home, a new hope, and the faithfulness of friends, Delmar is every person who is looking for something better. He has his faults and frailties, his courage and his fears. Understanding the need for good, clean, exciting fiction for young people and adults alike, authors Jim Laughter and Victor Bretthauer have dedicated themselves to writing fictional adventures that edify and lift the spirits of people everywhere. Escape to Destiny is the first book in an adventure series that will inspire young readers to think bigger and will give hope to those in hopeless situations.

"I am a mother of eight and grandmother of twenty. As such, I am always looking for books that I feel good about giving as gifts and that will not scandalize the impressionable minds of my children. Escape to Destiny is a keeper. I delighted in both the adventures and misadventures of Delmar, and the idea that his Galactic Axia is superior to my Earth captured my attention. I eagerly look forward to future episodes."

"Escape to Destiny is the tasty fruit of the long friendship of the authors. And real friendship – the kind that makes life worth living—is what it is about, served with the sauce of hold-your-hat intergalactic adventure. If you’ve enjoyed Star Wars or A Wrinkle in Time or Tuck Everlasting, get ready for the treat Escape to Destiny is."
