Eleanor, Time Captive

TC Blog Tour Graphic

Character Spotlight ~ Eleanor

Physical Appearance: Small, with dark red, curly hair. At home, she often wears overalls, and generally is barefoot.

Time Period: 1940

History: Eleanor grew up during the Great Depression. She has one older brother and two younger brothers. Being the only girl made her somewhat of a tomboy, and living through the Depression made her resourceful. She was a fun-loving girl, liking to play jokes. It made it easier to deal with hardships…back when she was with her family. However, later on, her perspective on laughing through her trials changed significantly.

Author’s Notes: Eleanor is my second favorite Time Captives character. I only had a few facts about her before writing her backstory, not much personality, but once I delved into her past in Calhortea, she really came to life. She had fears, she had ambitions, she even had love. But love that was tainted by a certain line from the Doctor Who episode “School Reunion:” “You can spend the rest of your life with me, but I can’t spend the rest of my life with you.”

Eleanor represents a lot in regards to me growing up as a writer. I used to write characters who were pretty close to perfect, who handled their circumstances in exactly the right way, who always turned to God when things got hard, and who always managed to get their happy ending. Well, Eleanor’s not one of those characters. She gets depressed. She outwardly does the right thing, but she refuses to let it go inwardly (yes, that was a Frozen reference 😉 ). And being a Time Captive kind of ruins her chance at a happy ending. As much as I will always love Sara Watson, Eleanor is a more real character to me. I poured a lot of emotion into writing that girl. She had such a difficult life, so many deep struggles. And I love her very much for it.

 

About the Book

 “M’lady, it has been fairly well confirmed that the Redona was hidden away by the merfolk at the conclusion of the Great War instead of destroyed as was commanded. My brother has confirmed to me Joseph’s belief that it was concealed at the Crossways.”

Toarna pressed her fingertips together in thought. “It must be recovered and destroyed as was at first intended.”

The Crossways

Emily, Allan, Jill, and Joey have been reunited with their long lost ancestors. But with that reunion comes the true beginning of their quest: free the rightful king of Calhortz so that he may be restored to his throne. The Redona, the only object that can free him from his long imprisonment, is rumored to be concealed in The Crossways, a mountain across the sea which cannot be entered.

A slave since birth, Adriel’s resentment and hatred towards the strytes only grows as his family is continually ripped from him. He longs for the freedom the Time Captives are prophesied to bring, but he doubts their existence, just as he doubts God’s love. Circumstances in Calhortz are so dire. How could they ever improve?

Who can enter The Crossways? Will the king ever be freed? Or will the slaves of Calhortz lose all hope of freedom before it is even offered to them?

The Crossways is the second book of the Time Captives trilogy, a tale of faith, family, fantasy, and a fight for truth and freedom.
