Dr. Bill Thomas's first novel, In the Arms of Elders, starts with a gripping parable called, "Learning from Hannah," that describes what happens to one young couple as they are marooned, become part of a new society organized through the wisdom of Elders, and then need to forge a new place for themselves when they go home again.
In a section called, "The Truth," Dr. Thomas shares additional personal information, including real-life efforts to make a life worth living for all ages.
Praise for the original publication of the parable:
"A splendidly visionary novel and wonderfully inspired reading." —Midwest Book Review
