I've just been travelling faster than the speed of light in a space craft on a journey to Alpha Centauri with a man named Brett and his computer mate, Jay.
Baines' novel Alpha Redemption strapped me into the Comet and drew me in to an incredible ride by the time I'd read the first page. How can that be? It just happened. These two characters captured my heart. It could be because ever since I can remember, I've always wanted to be an astronaut. Brett was one, and he has been on a journey physically, emotionally and spiritually. He was a man who had flaws, hopes, dreams, and circumstances that changed the course of his life. Somehow he couldn't get it quite together no matter how hard he tried.
I can relate to that. Sometimes the harder I try, the more I get myself into a mess bigger than I can handle. These are hard lessons to learn, but when I'm making the same mistakes over and over, I realise something has got to change.
Brett's journey to Alpha Centauri with Jay will touch you in a place you didn't know existed. Even now as I write this blog, there is a stirring in my chest I want to feel for a long time. I like this feeling. It's a spiritual awareness that there really is some bigger power than me that's in control of my life. Baines has left me with the impression that all I have to do is accept this power and it will be released, empowering me in ways I'd never thought possible.
I challenge you to read this book and feel the power released in the words that could change your life for the better. Thank you P.A. Baines for reminding me this power is available to all of us, if only we would believe.
