THE PENDANT- large-1

The Pendant is in the point of view of Aloy’s mother, Claraleese, before Aloy was born.  My editors asked me to explore the story from a different character’s perspective, and I focused on Aloy’s mother because she holds a key to fix the environment.  Claraleese doesn’t initially trust the information she’s given or know what to do with it, but she loves her son and never gives up hope that he’ll succeed in saving their people.  It’s about a mother’s sacrifices, even if they involve breaking the rules and letting go of the person she loves the most.  The theme of sacrifice for one’s children hits particularly close to home because I’m a mom.  I hope that if, one day, my children ask for the freedom to stretch their wings, I’m as supportive and hopeful as the main character in this story.
