Well, actually they aren’t. They’re going far away. But there is an account of their journey now.
Do you remember Henry Murphy, the Air Traffic Controller and his family?
Henry and his family find themselves on a small spaceship that is taking them away from Earth. After a stop and another start, the trip goes past Saturn, into deep space. The Murphy family does their best to fit in with the others. Suzy enjoys piloting, Mark learns a thing about farming and matters of the heart, and Hannah discovers her scientist side. Henry gets a job that resembles his old, traffic controller job a little. It’s just on a bit grander scale. After an interesting journey they arrive at Ballata, the home planet of Derlan, Heron and Rajin, and all their other friends. Once there, however, odd things happen.
If you enjoyed the adventures of the Murphys in book 1, Pioneer, I hope your joy will continue in this sequel, “Ballata: Murphys in Space – II”.
The paperback is still in the works. I’ll announce that as soon as it’s done.
Wishing you the best of the best,
Paul Z. Walker.
