The Spark (White Gates Adventures) Paperbackby Trevor Stubbs
Pain and love, drama and peace, hurt, yes, but loads of fun, too. It’s all here in “The Spark”. Follow Shaun as he is faced with real darkness while his friends and family struggle to help him find light and hope again. Among the different places on Earth, visit India and travel through its backstreets and glory in its wonders. Across the universe, come meet a people enslaved by their own robots and face the question of tragedy and generosity on the home planet of Joh. These are just a few of the adventures that form the fourth and last book of the Whit Gates Adventure series. “The Spark celebrates the indestructible spark of love which offers an opportunity for healing,” says Trevor of his new novel. “In Britain there is a new recognition of the mental health needs of our children and young adults. Those who went through the world wars of the twentieth century demanded a stiff upper lip, but times have changed. Through the efforts of psychologists today, and the campaigning of Prince Harry and others, we can applaud and encourage those who are willing to talk about that which is destroying them from within.” In The Spark, Trevor Stubbs continues and concludes his White Gates Adventures series with a new standalone fantasy novel. Shaun, now aged 20, has never been as quick or confident as his elder sister, Kakko, or as bright as his younger brother, Bandi. He has been the steady quiet one, opting for youth and community studies. But circumstances now threaten to destroy Shaun’s way of life. How does he cope with the traumas that come his way? By means of the mysterious white gates, readers explore yet more new places and revisit some of the familiar ones. “The Spark will appeal to readers looking for a book willing to tackle head-on the question of how a loving creator could allow people to come face to face with evil.
