This is the story of Beth. It is also the story of many children from the past, many of those today and many who have yet to be. Little children, who face trials far greater than their tender years. But who overcome through the invisible power of Hope that captures the heart in the face of seemingly impossible odds. Hope, that magically appears and takes hold in the mystical Land of Ominook.
As the story goes, Beth is chosen to travel beyond the Realm of Deep Life. Her Grandmother Momay, leads her to Hope by the way of an old, old story passed down through the centuries. Beth travels beyond space and time to walk among the Opinocks. Creatures who serve, protect, and heal the children of Earth as they pass through the valleys of pain and fear.
She opens her heart to strange beings who respond with kindness and even a bit of humor. Beth finds courage she did not know she possessed and in fact, she learns to laugh again. You too will find that within abides the "Nook" beyond the stars. And just as little Beth, the first step of the journey is to close your eyes.
