The scene opens in, of all places, an orphanage, but not just any orphanage. The tiny residents of the Arcadia Adoption Home have suffered life’s ultimate betrayal and cruelty. Remarkably, they bear no physical or emotional scars. That’s because these little ones are no longer broken and abandoned. Here they are cherished, healed, and—in every way—whole.
Author, Ty Benbow has penned a powerful work of fiction that champions a heavenly worldview on perhaps the most important and divisive topic of this age. I’m Not Real, weaves together all the stories of the broken—the children, and the parents who failed them.
Benbow’s compelling narrative depicts the gut-wrenching consequences of some of our worst choices. Written in a style that will appeal to women and men alike, I’m Not Real will strike a chord with the millions of individuals among us who desperately need to be healed. Herein is a clear message of hope, but only because of the grace and mercy of God.
