Synopsis: After witnessing the accidental shooting of his friend, a young boy is faced with not only having deal with the realization of Carol's death but must also find his way back in order to get help, as magical forest creatures appear to help guide him safety home.

From the Author: No Turning Back is the story of a journey taken by a young boy, Dillon, who has suddenly and unexpectedly been faced with that most difficult of all experiencesthe death of someone close to us. Dillon's journey is a very personal one, a journey of the heart. He must find his way across a nocturnal landscape that is at times eerie and frightening, at times heartbreaking, and at times overwhelmingly and mysteriously beautiful. He is accompanied on his journey by a mute and mysterious guide, an injured falcon (the bird his friend Carol died trying to protect). As he ventures deeper into the star-studded, shadowy territory that he must cross before reaching home, he meets three more animals who are in no way mute but regard him at first with suspicion and assail him with questions. After recognizing his innocence, however, they offer him advice and guidance. With the help of his animal guides, Dillon learns to face his own fear, anger, and heartbreak and finds his way safely home by sunrise.

I chose to tell this story by placing the subject of dying in the context of renewalof rebirth and the cycle of life. Its underlying themes are courage, acceptance, and remembrance. The story was written as a gift, both for my sister, to whom it is dedicated, and for any reader who may find in it something of worth.
