About Echo Girl
In ECHO GIRL, Alice in Wonderland meets Around the World in 80 Days. Fear researcher Audrey Silver, 31, travels the world to save an infant whose DNA could repress mankind’s fear of death that spurs our history of violence. Terrorists, zealots, and slave traders chase her and the child. Audrey is also chased by her agoraphobia and her mother, a major general, determined to return Audrey to Israel’s army and the violence Audrey abhors.
Along the way, Audrey encounters such points of interest as the Silk Road, escaped slaves, Anasazi Indians, and romance with a famous preacher of non-violence.
On the surface Echo Girl is summer read with many plot points while underneath it speaks to the violence that has chased mankind since we left the trees. My novel would appeal to fans of the chase and exposé of slavery in The Underground Railroad; the passionate romance and time travel in The Time Traveler’s Wife; and the quirkiness in The Portable Veblen.
