I Want To Know

Here's an excerpt from People of the Great Journey, my new adult work of spiritual and speculative fiction. (Publisher and publication date to be announced shortly!) This is "Olwen's Song" from Chapter 32:
I want to know that there is a God or some Source of Love that cares for the world.
I want to know that there is a reason why everything exists; that life is not a random array of matter.
I want to know that the suffering and sorrow woven into the very fabric of life is not meaningless, but serves some good and noble purpose.
I want to know that evil, like suffering, also serves the Good.
I want to know that humanity is here for a reason.
I want to know that my life, regardless of whether it is a success or a failure, is of value in and of itself.
I want to know that I am not here by accident.
I want to know that I am loved by life.

Thank you for your support! We have had a few nibbles, one offer (unsuitable in the end), and other publishers still reading it. Latest rejection called it "fascinating but not commercial enough for mass market retail." Sigh.
