It's always impressive, and most interesting, to me when a man writes for young people…something of family and honor, as this is typically not the norm these days….everything seems to have zombies and massive ugly creatures at war. So when someone, a man in particular, writes about the importance of family, well, I'd like to promote this work to our young audience. Some of my followers here at Thornton Berry Shire Press will be curious to take a look and share with their young ones, I'm certain of this.
Chris has done his homework. He has a full description of his story that also offers a book trailer, which many authors have not caught up to as yet. He has a map, and a clear direction he is heading…please follow along and meet our author Chris Elston and his debut book, The Four Corners.

The Snyder family is falling apart. Grant and Jill barely speak and when they do, they’re screaming at one another. Their youngest child, Kinsey, has withdrawn into himself to the point where the only person he really speaks to is his sister, Tatum. She was born with more resilience than her brother and has essentially taken over the duties of both parents where Kinsey is concerned. His greatest fear is that his parents will split up and he’ll be separated from Tatum. When another shouting match ensues and the word divorce is finally used, Kinsey loses it. He runs into the forest in a total emotional frenzy and vanishes right before Tatum’s eyes. When she and her parents search exhaustively and come up empty, fear, anger and guilt cause another emotional outburst and the rest of the family vanishes as well. They each wake up alone in separate parts of a strange world called Kadosh. This world is made up of a vast ocean and five islands used to separate men, women, boys and girls by Raum, the ruler of Kadosh, who lives on the island in the center of the other four. Raum is in control of everything but the people in Kadosh. The Snyders band together with other people previously trapped in Kadosh on a thrilling quest to defy Raum and find their families against all odds. The Four Corners is a brilliantly told, imaginative story about the importance of love and family.
