Local author publishes book

Thursday, November 16, 2006

PublishAmerica has released Unto the Least of These by Eve Proctor of Cherokee Village. In Proctor's masterfully written novel, widower John Walker's sweet, compliant child easily changes into something resembling a wild animal caught in a trap, self-inflicting pain, kicking, screaming and throwing objects across the room. John wonders how he can help his beautiful 6-year-old daughter and still keep his promise to his wife.

Megan Anne Colby is plagued by a recurring dream, or is it a dream? Perhaps it is a vague, haunting childhood memory, something that only surfaces during the quiet hours of the night when Megan's mind is free from her daily routine.

Compelled to banish her nightmares and discover the truth surrounding her mother's mysterious death, Megan travels to her grandparents' farm. Once there, she encounters a young girl who silently appears, then suddenly vanishes as though she were merely a vapor. At the same time, the hidden secret Megan uncovers leads to the greatest love of all.

Although born in Witts Springs, Ark., Proctor spent most of her adult life in Lancaster, Calif. In 1957 she married Jimmy L. Proctor of Ripley, Tenn. They have five children and 17 grandchildren. After retirement, their move to Cherokee Village led Eve into interpreting for a deaf child in the public school.
