It is with great pleasure today that I once again have author Christine Nolfi on my blog. Christine is here today to share the news of her March 9th release of her newest book "The Tree of Everlasting Knowledge". She also shares how her four adopted children came into her life and inspired this book. The book is about family, about love, about hope in the midst of darkness and most of all a look at how people can triumph over adversity and heartbreak coming out stronger for going through them!
Without further ado please welcome Christine!
Out of the darkness and into the light!
I first met my four children on an orphanage’s steps in the sweltering heat of the jungle. I’d traveled around the belly of the earth to arrive, a woman nearing forty who was long past the age most folks start a family.
Despite my thin self-assurances, maturity hadn’t prepared me for motherhood. The kids were as badly abused and malnourished as any of the world’s Forgotten Children. My two younger daughters wore baby clothes even though they were nearing their 5th birthday. My older daughter (age 7) and my son (6) looked like toddlers.
Despite every cruelty the kids had endured they proved to be warm-hearted and brave in ways most of us can’t imagine. Each child harbored goodness, a deep-rooted decency that existed outside the hardships met. As the years passed, I was left wondering—how can children so badly abused rise above those memories to become surprisingly good?
That question drove the writing of The Tree of Everlasting Knowledge.
The novel addresses a truth about the human heart we should never take for granted—its ability to be drawn to the light. Yes, the world harbors darkness. Suffering and greed abound. What never make the headlines are the common moments of grace in everyday lives. People helping people. The love that secures a family. The acts of kindness that blossom every day.
If you’ve ever held an elderly parent’s hand or cradled a child in your arms; if you’ve ever waltzed across a dance floor with a man you love or smiled at a stranger for the sheer delight of sharing joy; rest assured—you, too are a Child of Light.
