Take a journey with Darien and his spirit guide, Sundeep, from pre-birth into the after-life. In The Darien Chronicles: Object for Reflection, A Journey into Love, Part One –In the Beginning, walk with him as he leaves behind vague recollections of being a cast off and develops his rules for survival in the drama of an adoptive family where secrets thrive. Be with him as he struggles to separate truth from fiction and find his own soul.
Is Sundeep real or imaginary? Is Darien who he is seen to be or is there more to who he is? Who can he trust? The appearance of things suggests no one, as he cautiously formulates a plan to fit in and be accepted.
Circumstances bring Darien, a four-year old boy, into a working class family that includes an older boy whose friend causes him to question himself and shakes his very foundation as a boy wanting, desperately, to become a man. Being a bastard boy and child of a trollop, Darien finds refuge and a reflection of who he is in his secret friend, Sundeep. But does he believe what he hears? Or do the other influences and experiences he encounters speak louder to him? Find out. Perhaps you’ll even find yourself in this story. And this is just the beginning!
