About the Author
Emily Stalder Johnson is an emerging author who is passionate about writing Christian fiction to inspire and encourage her readers. An avid reader and writer for most of her life, she also enjoys creating Christian contemporary song lyrics and selling them. Emily lives in Lancaster, Ohio with her husband and roommate (who is much more like a brother to her), and their little zoo consisting of three cats and two dogs.
Andy rode his horse throughout all the woods on his property, scanning for any sight of his son. Despite his thorough, frantic efforts, the boy was nowhere to be found.
Andy’s concern for Dublin was becoming more and more palpable. What bothered him the most was that he knew something was wrong, but he didn’t know what exactly was wrong or where in the world Dublin could be. The hairs at the back of Andy’s neck stood on end. He attempted to call out Dublin’s name, but his voice caught in his throat. Nothing but a quiet, strangled cry escaped his lips.
Twice more he tried to call for his son, but his voice remained as though it were paralyzed. So he rode all the more frantically, searching around every boulder and in every crevice, large shade tree, and cave—anywhere Dublin could be lying hurt or ill.
Perhaps he’s unconscious. Oh, Lord, what do I do? Help me, Father, so I can help him.
Andy couldn’t shake the awful feeling that something was terribly wrong. His instincts had proven to be mostly accurate in times past. And that frightened him.
