A timely and powerful book…based on a true story…this ‘über’ romance genre novel takes readers on unexpected dark twists and turns…from the ‘high mountains’ of love, faith and hope to the devastating caverns of torment, secrets, and silence surrounding child sexual abuse and pedophile behaviour.
In a bold début novel, author Davayda Daniels introduces readers to a vibrant young woman, Marina Jacobs – a courageous central character readers will instantly love … and never forget. What doesn’t engage readers about Marina…? From her sunny disposition and childhood days in South America’s blazing ‘Grand Chaco’, to her close faith and family ties, ‘tomboy’ antics and ‘new life’ in America’s Pennsylvania heartland, Marina engages readers with her outlook on life inspired by her grandma, Oma Lowen’s caring words, “Every day is a gift from God…just waiting to be opened!” Marina believes life has nothing but sweetness in store, and throughout this well-scripted story, Daniels weaves a colorful tapestry of adventure which invites readers to explore the heart of Marina’s dreams including her whirlwind tour of Europe and sudden romance with Ken Krayker, a fellow American college student. When Marina says, ‘I do’, the couple seems destined for a match made in heaven until darkness falls as Ken discloses his boyhood secrets of sexual abuse. As the story continues, Marina is caught in a web of lies that threatens to destroy everything she has ever believed in…
A professional marketing specialist, as well as a Christian writer of over one hundred personal life stories for the Why Am I On this Earth? publication (whyencounter.com), Daniels wrote Never Walk in Darkness in order to help raise awareness about child sex abuse and the insidiousness of pedophile crimes, which as she says, “…can impact any community…”
