Elross believed that he was just an ordinary boy, no different to any other in the secluded valley of Anibar. But one night, an encounter with a mysterious stranger, who saves his life from a ferocious beast sets his feet on a path of discovery, about himself and the wider world outside. His whole world is soon turned upside-down, and he quickly finds himself surrounded by creatures he had only known from the bedtime stories his father had read to him as a boy. It is among this new world of marvels that he comes to learn of an enchanted stone which holds within it the possibilities of immortality…the Kingstone.

Janette Oke has dreamed for years of retelling a story in a biblical time frame from a female protagonist’s perspective, and Davis Bunn is elated to be working with her again on this sweeping saga of the dramatic events surrounding the birth of Christianity…- via https://www.bookdepository.com

But Beth is about to leave it all behind…… – via https://www.bookdepository.com

I have also enjoyed reading numerous other books by her. (the links as to where you can purchase the books are embedded in the pictures)

The tradition of having Australia Day as a national holiday on 26 January is a recent one. Not until 1935 did all the Australian states and territories use that name to mark that date. Not until 1994 did they begin to celebrate Australia Day consistently as a public holiday on that date….-Via http://www.australiaday.org.au/australia-day/history/
