An Introduction to the Novel: Portsoy Woods

Copyright 2016 Woodwind Realm Publishing


Portsoy Woods, was written in 2015 and in 2016.  If all goes as expected, it shall be available for launch and sale in November, 2016.

          It is the story of a young intelligence analyst from Northern Virginia who convinces his wife that their young family with four small children, should relocate from the relative comforts and security of their suburban home to a large acreage tract in a very rural setting.  This is a difficult decision for them to make as it takes them from friends, family, and from good jobs with a negligible commute. The decision to relocate is certainly, at first, counter-intuitive.

          They relocate and find that even within their own state, a completely different rural culture and to some degree, different values exist in comparison. Their journey. their new friends and their learning is explored, as the economy and culture of the United States deteriorates. They also endure some personal losses, uncertainties, and disasters along the way.

            Although this book will probably attract those who are interested in preparedness, pre-emptive relocation, and survivalism, this story of family is about much more. It is about the value of flexibility, resilience, hope, faith, loss,  and charity for one's family and friends.

          This book is the third book written by Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel, and it is her first novel brought to market.
