a tale of the heart

by Gale Orville Connell & Kitty Roxanna Connell

REL (Remote Emissary of Life) is a biomechanical being created in 2191. His mission, in this fast-paced metaphysical novel, is to travel from his oppressed, fear-filled time to the world of 1999 to discover the secrets and reasons for such global fear, and change it!

In Second Messenger we learn that REL is programmed with the knowledge of many, many books. Indeed, he is “...literally the best of everyone”. His mentor, Dr. Phillip P. Morrison, wants him to fulfill the [failed] New Age Movement, “ shift human consciousness...”. But we learn that God had other plans for this creature.

And so, Second Messenger, like all truly good books, is written on several planes. For instance, what is it like for a brand new being, as close to human as possible, to witness 1999 ...the beauty of the Earth...the variety available in spirituality...the disparity between religion and war...even the love of a good woman?

The Connell’s have given us a page-turner of a novel with more twists and turns (and excitement) than a mountain road. Indeed, just when you think you’ve reached the end of the road, you find another hairpin turn directly ahead. But the Connell’s have also given us a book about a mysterious man who descends to Earth, 1999...who is touched by the right hand of God. He says, “...there is no discernible point at which God becomes us and we become God. This intimate relationship with Source gives each of us the power to create the life we want to live”.

Second Messenger is about love versus fear and the hope for the future. Gale and Kitty Connell delivered a superb book that, in this reviewer’s opinion, can and will be a major motion picture!
