Daniel is planning a “Meet the author and book signing” here in Barriere

Daniel Sweetnam with latest release

“The Purpose” is book two in the fictional series called, “The Chronicles of Malachai” which continues the journey of Malachai, now a young adult, who was given a Gift by God to see the spiritual world that co-exists alongside our own. However, having this gift and choosing what to do with it proves to be a bigger struggle than Malachai expected. The angels want to help him; the demons want to destroy him; but the choice of who to trust still remains his own. Nevertheless, Malachai soon discovers there’s yet another choice he needs to make which has an even greater purpose and will establish his position within the spiritual war itself.

“The Purpose” is now the second book Daniel has written while living here in Barriere, with “The Gift” being book one in this five-book series. Along with his wife Daphne, Daniel owns Sweetnam’s Store and the newly opened extension to their main store, which is in partnership with their sons, Josiah & Samuel, called ”Sweetnam’s Nik Naks”, their giftware and novelty store. Daniel’s mother Lorraine also helps work the local family business and together they are very proud to live in the community of Barriere and are very thankful for how well Barriere and the entire area have supported them.

“Writing these books has truly been a dream come true for me. The people of Barriere and the entire area have been so incredibly supportive of my first book, sharing many wonderful comments and conversations with me, I hope they find “The Purpose” just as exciting as “The Gift”.”

A special note that local residents may find interesting is that the cover pictures of both books are taken right here in Barriere, by Josiah and Samuel. They show some of the spectacular scenery this area has to offer.

If you would like to pick up a copy of “The Purpose” or “The Gift”, or to get more information, both books are available at Sweetnam’s Store and Sweetnam’s Nik Naks.

Daniel is planning a “Meet the author and book signing” here in Barriere, which may happen during the Candlelight and Holly in early December. More details will be shared at a later date.
