~ Ephemerals by Barbara Belinskas


A group of humans that have evolved beyond the rest of the world hide themselves away from the rest of the world.  After a few centuries with the birth of two special Ephemerals named Annalisa and Jonathan who become romantically involved a love story develops.  As time passes Annalisa and Jonathan find themselves in a situation that where they need to make a hard decision to leave all they know to venture into the unknown.  In doing this they have many followers that feel the same as they do with the need to escape from events unfolding within their villages and amongst their family and friends. 

This group is unaware that they are mankind’s salvation and the next evolution of Ephemerals that will be entrusted and blessed by the Powers and Forces of Earth and the Universe to bring peace to the warring nations of Earth.  They will go through many months of trials and errors until they achieve their final goal, before being able to enjoy the peace and tranquility that they desire, and with a twist at the end that will be unknown to all except by Jonathan who learns of this during their venture, but must be kept a secret until the time is right.  Once they achieve their goal they will have a blissful life for years until Annalisa and Jonathan’s children reach the age of young adulthood.  Only then can Jonathan reveal to their followers what is to transpire.
