Help?

Eighteen year old Evangeline Taylor has had enough of life in the city, where few people, especially her mother, seem to care whether she lives or dies. She begins having dreams about a mysterious love. After her mother kicks her out of their home, Evangeline decides to leave the country for a new life in Ireland where a childhood friend has relocated.

There, she meets the man of her dreams — literally — and finds a job, but her dreams become even more strange, evolving into memories of a time before Evangeline was born. When her mother becomes terminally ill, the girl rushes back to the United States, leaving her new life and new love temporarily behind.

Is it only temporary? Not if her best friend, Henry, has anything to say about it.

“Evangeline” is Clare Hamlin’s first novel. The 17-year-old author lives in El Dorado Hills and attends Oak Ridge High School where she is a junior. She has been writing since she was 13.

The idea for “Evangeline” came from a dream and Hamlin wrote the first draft in a few months and then left the manuscript untouched until she was 16.

“Basically all that I have experienced has made me realize that nothing is impossible including the outrageous goals we set up for ourselves,” said Hamlin.

She is currently at work on a second book, “Dawn Before the Day,” which will be the first volume in a two-part story about a girl who tries to save the human race from extinction from demons and beasts.

“Evangeline” is available in print version from lulu.com or from Face in a Book, 4359 Town Center Blvd., El Dorado Hills for $19.08. It is also available in Kindle version at Amazon.com for $2.99.
