Soon Andraetra will be a privileged Gorgesque: half her face exchanged with that of a hideous person, to share the burden and ensure she recognises the truth that she can never be wholly good. But her ‘intended’ Courundia abducts Andraetra, hoping to reveal the lies surrounding her fiancé’s return to life after dying in the revolution. All that’s revealed, however, is that no one knows the truth.After watching Glenn Beck's film, The Man in the Moon, I thought about the Earth and how it is a living thing. I read many scriptures and struggled how I would write this. One Sunday I thought about the Earth receiving the blood the Savior spilled. How horrible that must have been! This thought stayed with me for a week and then the next Sunday morning, the whole story came to me except for a few edits. It was an amazing experience! I hope it stirs others to think as I did and that new thoughts might settle in the heart to feel joy in the blessing of Mother Earth!
