Good Narrative Principles

Shackles of Time


Jessica’s heroes are Dr. Dolittle, St. Francis of Assisi, Jane Goodall. She’s always been that way. While her girlfriends pined over Madonna, Charlize and the Power Puff Girls, Jessica memorized the map of Africa.  To cast off the shackles of time, make-up and shopping and live close to the heartbeat of mother earth, this was Jessica’s dream. Twenty years later, on the game reserve, Jessica feels like she is living the life she was meant for. That is until last December when the animals disappeared. Baffled, she combs the countryside unaware of the dark clouds massing on the horizon and the flood that is to follow.
