The Beckoning Sky
by Maryke Schouten

llse is healing from a failed marriage as a result of her mother’s betrayal.  Ziltan is the sole caregiver to his abusive father. When he dies a secret is revealed which shatters Ziltan’s entire world.  Through these two very different lives coming together we glimpse the fine line that both divides and connects us; how families and communities help us grow as we simultaneously push them away.  This is the journey of facing our failings and fears and how love, in all its shades and shadows, mends our tattered spirits.

Maryke started writing as a young expatriate child and continued when she returned to Canada in her teens; she took a break when studying and starting her career in dietetics and returned to her first passion when this story came to her in a dream containing only an image, a voice, and two words. After many years in British Columbia, Maryke now lives in Alberta with her husband and son and a couple of beloved pets, one of whom is her faithful companion on long walks where she connects with the beauty and peace of the land.
