Synopsis: Author Howard Frank Mosher called The Hope We Seek "an elegantly-written, epic story of gold, adventure, and love in one of America's last frontiers. There’s just the right touch of magical realism in his Far North wilderness. . . . Shapero is a spellbinding storyteller."
At the close of the 19th century, Zachary Knox, a sharpshooter known as “the Bull’s-Eye Telepath,” heads north in search of gold. But natural disaster and human trickery conspire to deliver him instead to a shadowy mining company where hard labor, sustained by unwavering belief, promises an unearthly treasure. The mine boss, Trevillian, rules the camp like a despotic priest, and at the center of his faith is Hope, an elusive goddess for whom the miners toil, enduring increasingly perilous trials as they pursue her into the depths of the earth.
Zack determines to overthrow Trevillian, with cryptic guidance from Sephy, a magnetic woman on the trail of her disappeared brother—until Hope appears and reveals the astonishing future she has in mind for him . . .
A multimedia app of The Hope We Seek will be released March 15th by acclaimed app developers Somethin’ Else.
