About this title

Synopsis:

In this fantasy-adventure story, David, 13 years old, and his 10 year old sister Jessica have been sent to their grandparents' farm in BC's Cariboo region. Their parents have recently separated and both children are in need of spiritual healing. Soon after their arrival, Grandpa shows them a very special book "a large, ancient-looking book", with a lock. Inside the book is a "picture of two children standing on a path in the middle of a dark and misty forest." Underneath are the cryptic worlds:

WHEN LOST IN THE MYSTERIOUS FOREST THROUGH ENEMY; LAND HE RIDES CALL FOR HIM AND HE WILL BE THE LIGHT WHERE DARKNESS HIDES.

On the other page is the picture of a man surrounded by brightness, astride a beautiful white horse. As the children gaze upon this picture, they are suddenly transported to the land of Antoch, on a distant planet, where an evil king has taken over the land. The children are then enlisted to assist "The Ryder" to take back the kingdom for Himself and restore peace, love, and harmony to His people.

About the Author:

Born into a Mennonite family, Carrie spent her childhood in a small farming community in southern Manitoba. With only a few remaining inhabitants, Horndean was once a thriving little community. At one time Main Street boasted two grocery/general stores, two auto mechanic garages, grandfather's feed mill, grain elevator, egg grading station, post office, church and school. Grandpa's barn and homestead still stands, now owned and cared for by strangers. 
After she married, she and her husband moved to British Columbia, where they still make their home in charming Abbotsford. Carrie's interest in the arts began as a young girl. An imaginative child, she loved to draw, read, write and listen to stories. Their school library consisted of a mere three short shelves of books, not nearly enough to satisfy her need for creative reading and story-telling. After school Carrie would often run home to sit down beside their old fashioned, console radio and listen to Aunt Ollie - a half hour program where Aunt Ollie read fables, mysteries and other delightful tales. Carrie's passion for storytelling and desire to create continued after marriage and children. She took several writing courses as well as pursuing painting, drawing and film making. She writes for both adults and children, fantasy and adventure being her favorite.Carrie is an ordained minister with a M.Min (Professional Writer) and D.Min (Fine Arts & Media) Other books by the author: The Ryder, 1991, A Children's Fantasy Adventure. Newfies to the Rescue, 2000, Tales of the Newfoundland Dog. Treasure Trap, a sequel to The Ryder, is in process..
