Publisher's Description

Miri Brayden teeters on a razor's edge between placating and enraging her brother, whom she depends upon for support. Yet if his anger is unleashed, so is his madness. Miri must keep his descent into lunacy a secret, or he'll be committed to an asylum—and she'll be sent to the poorhouse.

Ethan Goodwin has been on the run all of his life—from family, from the law ... from God. After a heart-changing encounter with the gritty Reverend John Newton, Ethan would like nothing more than to become a man of integrity—an impossible feat for an opium addict charged with murder.

When Ethan shows up on Miri's doorstep, her balancing act falls to pieces. Both Ethan and Miri are caught in a web of lies and deceit—fallacies that land Ethan in prison and Miri in the asylum with her brother. Only the truth will set them free.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Michelle Griep
Located in: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Submitted: May 13, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  To gain a deeper understanding of the insidiousness of deception and root it out of not only my own life, but to encourage others to do the same.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The realization that sometimes a lie need only be spoken once for it to be believed as truth. We should examine the "truths" we believe in light of Scripture.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  In my research, I was appalled at the harsh treatment of early nineteenth century mental health patients--practices committed oftentimes on those who were known to be perfectly sane, in the name of following orders. It made me question what 'orders' I follow and why.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Favorite authors: Travis Thrasher, John Steinbeck, Lisa Mangum, Charlotte Bronte, Jill Williamson, Jessica Dotta, Tim Downs

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Life is a vapor--seek God now before it's too late.
