In Through the Balustrade, the group of Outcasts who live outside the boundary have not only found a world where they are free from the oppression in the villages, but they’ve also found promises and gifts that point to a new home, a better place.
Their Leader is an unseen being from a different world, and he’s coming back to claim his own. He draws his followers to himself, gives them gifts, and offers them a life filled with hope, truth, and love.
The Outcasts fumble as they follow, but they’re never completely out. They know their imperfections and how to love whoever winds up in their cave. They hope. They believe, and they love.
