The big news is that this website is finally back in operation! I was back in D.C. on a mission for the Mormon Church for two years, and my website fell by the way side, you might say. I've had my webmaster design me a new site and re-establish it on the Internet.
This website was first designed to promote my screenplay, Seven Sisters. It took about 18 months to write it, and after there were no takers to make it into a movie, I decided to turn it into a book. Thus, Seven Sisters: the Voyage was born. It took another 18 months to deliver the book.
The good news now is that I am working on the sequel to my first book. It will be entitled Seven Sisters: Overland.
I am happy to announce that I have 260 pages written and have moved the Saints from the Amazon immigration ship, that landed in New York City, across the country by steamer and rail to the Mormon Outfitting Camp in Florence, Nebraska. The rest of the book deals with the pioneer trek to Utah and all the adventures, drama, humor, highs and lows, and the sacrifice and faith of the Saints on this monumental, historical migration, as seen through the eyes of the Seven Sisters. (That was a mouthful!)
In the meantime, I am promoting my book and screenplay in hopes that someone will want to bring this great story to the big screen. After all, it has all the makings of an epic religious saga--of a persecuted people, struggling to find a place to worship according to the dictates of their minds and hearts, and who made a 5000 mile journey, fraught with danger and sacrifice to obtain it.
Seven Sisters: the Voyage is a story about a little known part of the Mormon struggle in the 1800's. I hope that you will want to read it and share it with others. It can be ordered from Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com in paperback, hardback, and also for Kindle or Nook. You can contact me at carolyn dot hart dot bennett @ gmail dot com for more information.
