Cardinal Meadows by Noel Goetz

A Journey of Faith in a new place. 

Leonard Sommer’s story is similar to so many today who finds themselves under-employed, under-funded, and after moving back into their parents homes- ‘under the gun’ to leave. One night, Leonard happens upon an internet advertisement for a home and apple orchard which he believes to be a sign from God. Believing that this is the answer to all his problems, Leonard sends a down payment check and drives West to the small mountain community of Cardinal Meadows. What meets him there, who meets him there, and how he endures the aches and pains of friendship, romance, adventure and faith is where this story begins. It is a story of personal and spiritual growth and seeing God’s hand at work in every life and every situation.

Note: Cardinal Meadows is unfinished, with no recent updates.  It contains some graphic violence.


A partial scripted series, with no recent updates

The Fixer-Upper from Hell….no, Heaven!

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Dec 29, 2012: Been reading too much depressing, dark, horrific fiction lately? Then you might want to cleanse your palate with this charming, easy read. The first chapter is a little confusing as it starts and ends with events that apparently had several years between them, but the tale quickly hits its stride and keeps the reader clicking to the next chapter to find out what outrageous situation Leonard will encounter next. The writing is not particularly polished but has plenty of energy and humour. The quirky characters are distinct and unpredictable.

The heart of the story is about a man rediscovering his faith in God and life, so expect some religious content. In fact, each chapter is introduced with a relevant bible quote, some to hilarious effect.You will also learn how to restore a rural property on a shoestring, or less than a shoestring, as demonstrated by Spooner the hippie whose motto is "If it’s free, it’s for me".
