Chapter 1: A New World, A New Friend – The grass was green in Arcadia. The sky was blue, the clouds were white, and the river was a clear bluish gray. Across the water, needle-thin evergreens intermixed through an autumnal display of crimson, ginger, and amber foliage. Amanda Jones squinted in the direction of the single, yellow sun and smiled at its gentle warmth. If she kept her gaze away from the city skyline, she could almost imagine she was back on Earth.
There were differences, of course.
Despite being at the edge of Arcadia’s largest city, the air was filled with floral, earthy scents instead of the faint blend of exhaust fumes and construction dust that lingered throughout Amanda’s neighborhood. From every direction, birdsong filtered lightly through the air. It was a thin, silvery backdrop of sound that had gradually become as familiar and unremarkable to Amanda as the perpetual sound of passing traffic back home.
Another difference in Arcadia was the boy who sat beside her. If Amanda were sitting in the small park outside her apartment building, Drew would be by her side. (Read a longer excerpt here.)
In 2020, Family and Foes was published exclusively through Amazon. In 2022, a second edition was released for wider distribution. The new edition has an updated cover and interior layout. Both covers were designed by Susan Quilty.
