“First Night: The Conflict Between Hope and Cynicism resumes the story of Lee Brazil whose reemergence encounters a future world assimilating change, mystery and a cascade of new characters, encountered from the past, that lead the reader into a story that cannot be put down. Walk with Lee as he encounters a world changing in ways not earlier conceived, a kaleidoscope of sensation, trepidation, hope, and adrenalin rush. ~ Richard Lumb, criminologist and contributing author of The Police Journal “First Night”

“Suspenseful, bold, and provocative, First Night takes the reader on a journey — ahead in time and across the globe, deep into some essential questions about what it means to live in an age of technological strides without losing the human heart.” ~ Rev Allen Ewing-Merrill, United Methodist Pastor
For many years we have been using storytelling as a tool for teaching the skills and the attitudes of resilience. Storytelling has been around since the first human beings sat down around a fire and talked about their lives. These first training sessions on resilience occurred thousands of years ago. From campfires to fireplaces to potbellied stoves to water coolers, we continue to tell stories about resilience.
In more recent times, we’ve written these down in the form of novels and biographies. Even more recently we’ve recorded them on tape and film, and, most recently on the internet. We have used Reaching Home and other novels as a primary tool in teaching these skills and attitudes. We feel this is an appropriate time to release the sequel to Reaching Home, First Night: The Conflict Between Hope and Cynicism, here on the internet. We will be releasing a chapter per week, for the next fifty-one weeks, beginning 01/01/2017. For those of you who do not wish to wait for the next weekly chapter, you can order a hard copy or a download from the publisher Reed Edwards Company.
