Book Excerpt

Margo stared at the tattered piece of brittle paper in disbelief. A gust of wind almost tore it from her hands, but the cold blast quickly died. Her eyes raced across the faded, amber-colored letter as she struggled to absorb its meaning. She stood transfixed and read the vehement warning written with a fountain pen in red ink. There is a diabolical evil that stalks this town. The next sentences were barely legible, but she could make out a phrase: “a true-blood Dubier.” The name sounded familiar from her research. Margo thought it might be one of the founding town fathers. She backtracked and deciphered a few preceding words. “They are closer than you think. Beware!”

The young potter mumbled, “Just what I don’t need before a big show—stiff-necked mud!”In frustration, she stopped the electric wheel, wiped her hands on her apron, and looked up. Her artistic eye caught the brilliant sunset from the big picture window. She sat mesmerized as the sun shot its last rays of golden light across the indigo sky.

It disappeared behind the Overlook Tower, swallowed by the silhouetted mountains.

The Dragon Master of the Dark Abyss breathed fire and summoned all his minions. He roared with a fearsome anger like rolling thunder. “You fools! What bumbling idiot allowed that book to fall into her hands?”

One thought on “The Dividing Stone by Anita Estes

  1. Thank you KImberley for hosting me on your blog! This has been a long awaited goal to have this book published. I feel that the Lord inspired this book to illustrate how much prayer is needed to overcome the schemes of the enemy. The theme goes right along with that of “War Room” though I started the book 20 years ago!!
