Winterville, GA, June 29, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Six Directions follows Lila Edmundson, a middle aged English woman, as she and her husband Horace travel to Egypt and Israel. Disenchanted with her overtly religious tour group and her husband’s irreverence and arrogance, she finds herself becoming closer to Whitman, their American tour guide—a man who seems to share some of the same intellectual and spiritual musings as her. In the end, however, she must come to terms with the fact that when the tour is over, she will return home again, and the visions of a different kind of life she allowed herself to briefly (and fervently) entertain must be put aside.
“'Want to know the secret of life?' her father had once asked her. About ten years old, she had eagerly nodded.
“‘Some things are hard, and some things are easy… all you have to do is figure out which is which.’ She had paused, waiting for the addendum, clarification, the secret sifting tool, but it did not come. He went to open a jar of dilled cucumbers for her mother, leaving her there in their old brown chair, staring at her scuffed left shoe, astonished.” –Excerpt, Six Directions.
