Noobie habits cover5.25x8.jpg

My brothers and sisters, think of the various tests you encounter as occasions for joy. After all, you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

(James 1: 2-3)

Jack and Carol MacCleary accepted their new life and employment on Saint Raphael’s island, along with the island’s many secrets. The MacCleary’s have the perfect life on the island. Jack is the Lineman, and Carol, now Professor MacCleary, teaches culinary and healing at Saint Raphael’s boarding school. The couple have two children: eleven-year-old daughter Mem, and an eight-year-old son, Johnny.

            Mem is about to attend Saint Raphael’s boarding school, as do all eleven-year-olds. Mem begins her first year, or Noobie year, with her best friend Jamie Calvin. Other-world children attend the island school, only by special invitation. The ancient monastic school is taught by the Brothers and Sisters of Saint Raphael’s.

            This non-traditional school has rules, and as headmistress, Mother Nicodemus ensures these rules are followed. No cursing, swearing, lying, cheating, stealing, gossiping, bullying, or breaking curfew, are but a few rules to obey. There are unconventional consequences for those who refuse.

            The school and staff are not quite as they seem, as Noobies soon learn and begin their first class, scavenger hunting. They must work together to solve clues in order to find their next class.

            Can Noobies, or first years resist the bullying? Can other-world students adapt to the strange and unusual island beliefs? Can Mem and her mates uncover the islands secrets before it's too late? Will all Noobies succeed in their first year?

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

                                                     (2 Corinthians 5:7)

 

Another year and more secrets at Saint Raphael’s. Many island families adopted other-world children found thru the H.A.L.O.S. (Help All Lost Orphan Souls) network. The MacCleary clan have adopted the twins, David and Moira, into their family.

            After successfully completing their first year, Mem’s former teammates, David, Moira, Jamie, and islander Darius, are now in Gopher House, or second year. Darius and David are starting to understand one another.

            One boy failed after his poor choices, and his defiance ultimately had him removed from Saint Raphael’s. Mem and her teammates were not at all sorry to see the boy go. They were surprised to learn of his replacement, a boy with down syndrome, Artis T Bass.

            Non-traditional classes continue in Gopher House with service training and new rules for their new lives. Their other class, NVD, or Non-Violent Defense course was evolving and challenging. Not everyone accepted Saint Raphael’s rules. The school bully, Lettie Jones, continually annoys and berates Mem and her teammates. One strange quirky outburst in the kitchens had Mem and some of her schoolmates sucked into the rainbow forbidden door and cast into the other-world of lies, poverty, and corruption.

            Lettie and Artis T are saved by another-world gang called Harpies. Mem, David, and Moira are thrown into another section of the other-world and forced not only to find their classmates, but also deal with brutal violence and slums along the river.

            Can Mem, David, and Moira find Lettie and Artis T before it’s too late? Will they be able to return to Saint Raphael’s? What secrets will be revealed?

“ … but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

  • (John 4:14)

 

Saint Raphael’s is back in session, and the monastic school continues to reveal its secrets in Book 4 of the Lineman and the Cook Faith Mystery series.

            Students are flying, and they’re not using broomsticks! Mem and her schoolmates are in their third year, and a very non-traditional curriculum continues. This year proves to be quite a challenge as they learn how to mentor first-years in Dux House.

            Strange and unusual weather abound the island. The harbor master and lineman are working diligently to keep the island safe. The outlandish weather produces a violent pogonip, and threatens the islands safety when a body is whirled from the other-world.

            A new Noobie, or first-year is assigned to Mem and her unlikely teammate. This assigned first-year was one of the Harpies that taunted Mem the year before, when cast into the other-world.

            Saint Raphael’s is beset from other-world sources, and HABs are polluting the island’s life source and rivers. This new threat comes with a cost. Dark forces continue working to invade the island.

            Mem and her friends are desperate to save their beloved school and Saint Raphael’s island from unclean souls. What or who will betray the island? What evil will they have to face? Will they be able to keep the HABs from destroying their beloved island? Can Mem and her schoolmates keep the river flowing?
