MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released OneWay: The Message,a supernatural thriller and spiritual adventure by Robin McClellan and his wife Deborah Mark.
About the Book:
For Angela Roberts, it is a tragedy that touches off her journey into the mysterious legend of her grandmother, Iana Hamilton. Grief-stricken and confused, Angela strives to learn more about her past, and soon she finds that Iana’s cryptic illustrations from years gone by can lead her closer to the truth.
Angela’s world quickly begins to spiral out of control as she has her own mysterious experiences, similar to those her grandmother had gone through. She seeks help in the safety of her friendships and her marriage, but not before her journey takes her into the sphere of terrorism, time travel, electromagnetic energy and sometimes even what some refer to as the paranormal.
Reginald and Margaret Hamilton were recognized within the business community and societal circles of Philadelphia as successful and abounding in God’s blessings for their lives. Reginald had climbed the ladder of success, achieving his fortune through hard work, perseverance and a steadfast belief in the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.The couple had an unwavering devotion and a deep, abiding faith in God, dutifully placing God first and then believing all else would fall into place. Now in their early forties, their station in life reflected this belief. Their deep spirituality and honorable work ethic was a testimony to the Bible verse Ephesians 3:20: He who is able to do exceedinglyabundantlyabove all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. They had been blessed far beyond their wildest dreams, except in one area of their lives.
Margaret Hamilton’s heart longed for the day when God would bless them with a child. Year after year, she had seen the best physicians Philadelphia and New York had to offer, each time being reassured and encouraged that physically she was capable of becoming pregnant and delivering a healthy baby. But as one year moved into the next, it seemed that this was not God’s plan for them, at least not in the customary way. The couple had discussed adoption from time to time, which now was looking to be their only option of ensuring their hearts’ desire of bringing a child into their family. Night after night, instead of praying for God to bless Margaret with a pregnancy, now their prayers were for God to lead them to the child that He had chosen for them—a child not only in need of a loving family, but one who was in need of help due to life’s trials and tribulations.
On the first of the New Year, Margaret scheduled a meeting with the Head Master at the prestigious Greenwich Adoption Agency in Philadelphia. And within a few days, the Hamiltons were approved and raring to go on their search for either a son or a daughter to complete their family.
By the end of the first week of meetings, Margaret and Reginald were introduced to a young girl from Egypt. She immediately captured their attention and soon would capture their hearts as well. Even though the Head Master found her to be well-behaved and quite pleasant, he strongly urged against adopting her due to her vague past and lack of family and medical history. At best, she was most likely the bastard child of a poor, uneducated woman who lived in a small, remote village near Cairo. And in his opinion, she wouldn’t be the ideal fit for an affluent couple such as themselves.
He went on to further explain that a few years earlier, during an excavation trip to Egypt, a group of archaeologists from the American Institute of Archaeology in Philadelphia found her among the ancient ruins of the Great Pyramids of Egypt. It had been reported to the Egyptian government officials that on that day, a bright fireball with a vapor trail possibly hundreds of kilometers long streaked across the sky at noon. Within seconds of seeing the first flash of light, the archaeologists watched as a second fireball streaked across the sky and exploded somewhere behind the smaller pyramid in the group. A shockwave resulted, launching sand and rubble (or meteorite fragments) through the air. Fearful for their lives, and thinking that the world was coming to an end or that the earth was about to open up and devour them, the archaeologists turned to run. Then, suddenly, amidst the flying debris and chaos, a small child emerged from behind the pyramid where they’d seen the second flash of light. No one in the group spoke a word as the men watched this small, delicate child take one unsure step after another until she emerged from the dust to stand directly in front of them. This solemn-faced child appeared exhausted and only a day—or even hours—away from dehydration and starvation. Her lifeless and tired eyes indicated to the group that she was possibly suffering from a past traumatic event. Her skin was dry, sun-scorched and cracked; her clothing was torn and filthy. In short, it was undeniable this small child had been alone in the desert for some time. However, with the village deserted, there was no way to confirm or deny their suspicions, and there was no way to track down her identity.
