Dream Catcher

        The first book in the series. David is only nine when Dad drowns on the last day of vacation.Haunted by what he witnessed, he thinks life can't get any worse.  That is until Mom marries Mr. Fulton, Dad's business partner, a much older man who never had children.  To escape the beatings and verbal abuse inflicted by his step-father, David runs away for the sixth time. He is placed in foster care at the age of almost thirteen, until the Court can find out whom to blame.  For a boy accused of lying and stealing, no one will believe what he heard Mr. Fulton saying on the phone about his business dealings. But his foster-father, Mark Whitehorse gives him the chance to be a normal kid again and learn about his need for the love of  Jesus in his life.



























SANCTUARY

David and Mark have a new challange.  A deaf boy named Freddie comes to live with the two of them while his great uncle recovers from a bad fall and his father is in jail after telling the truth about business practices.  Fortunately David has begun learning sign. Mark hopes to adopt David as his legal son.  Freddie is only with them for short term.  The two boys bond as brothers, both having suffered a great loss in their young lives. David still has problems trusting. Freddie helps him, always ready to joke and laugh, seeing the lighter side of life.  David shows him Jesus. Freddie didn't  know the sign or his need of a savior. Their foster father is amazed as he watches the two of them support each other. As for Ms. Delores, Mark's lady friend . . . well you just have to read and see about their relationship.

But first he must learn to abide by their laws or be judged evil, like the cult members of their day. A sheltered young man, he was terrified of his new world. Assembly Guardian Master Raymond had killed Uncle, who claimed to be an outlaw physician. What choice did he have? No home or family, he must dedicate himself to Protectorate Assembly.

Jason Aurelius is an Elder Healer working in pediatrics with Assembly Guardian Master Randolph as his supervisor.

The two have not met since Jason Aurelius' Assembly presentation. Now they are faced with the horrors of their world. Jason Aurelius must choose between defending Aaron and his devotion to Raymond as guardian.
