TITUSVILLE, Fla., July 7, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Real Life Books and Media is pleased to announce the launch of Jessie
, an inspirational work of fiction by Rebekah Lyn
, and the second installment of the Coastal Chronicles series. The release is timely, as July marks the celebration of the 45th anniversary of the successful mission of Apollo 11, and America's first moon landing on July 20, 1969.
Brevard County author Rebekah Lyn's latest novel brings us a snapshot of history, 1960-1969; a serendipity account of actual events, factual tidbits and insights into the lives of ordinary and extraordinary people. Nature, tide pools and technology merge in this coming of age tale set amongst countdowns and confrontations.
After nearly two years of intensive research, Jessie will be available in e-book and paperback after July 16, 2014 online at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and iBooks. Special pre-sale book pricing now available through Smashwords.com for all e-readers, at BarnesandNoble.com for Nook, and iBooks.
Jessie, the youngest of the four Cole brothers, and a dreamer, becomes enamored with plans for America's manned space flight and the race to the moon, stirring dreams of becoming an astronaut. In a strange twist of fate, it is the space program and the momentum it gains that abruptly brings his family's beloved island life to an end.
Jessie is more than a coming-of-age depiction of the space program from rocket infancy to triumphant moon landing, or about a young man's struggle to find himself; it is also a coming-of-age story of the condition of the heart. Family relationships and relevant life issues are warmly touched upon, leaving us with a glimpse into a deep-rooted walk through time, history and faith.
"It is my hope that Jessie's story will inspire others to embrace America's future space adventures and to remember the lives of those who dreamed in the past. I am humbled at the wondrous human creativity and the natural creations God has given to all of us to enjoy." Rebekah Lyn
