Siege at Sorrel Rift

Foreword Magazine's Book of the Year Award Finalist in Audio Fiction

Lit Between the Ears and Two Plus Plus Productions are proud to present SIEGE AT SORREL RIFT by Veronica Paulina and starring Jason Downs and Lori Wilner.

SIEGE is about the passion between newlyweds Kaden Blood and Catherine Cobalt Blood. It is also about their two children, Elizabeth and Nathan, and the family they begin at Sorrel Rift.

However, when Kaden and Catherine’s intense desires become a bitter divorce, and Sorrel Rift is figuratively split apart, their family, and all four lives are in danger.

Episode One – Recap

Episode One introduced Kaden and Catherine Blood in their home at Sorrel Rift.

Episode Two – Recap

This episode opened with Kaden Blood speaking to the readers of The Ex-Press, his magazine for divorced mothers and fathers. The episode ended with The Narrator’s foreboding words for Lizzie and Nathan.

Episode Three – Recap

This episode spanned Kaden recalling the love he felt for Catherine on their wedding day and ended with Lizzie rallying The Rifts – the nickname for other children whose parents are going through bitter divorces.

And now, Episode Four

Lizzie’s growing band of followers, The Rifts – children of warring parents – have escaped their homes and joined together:

Halt! Who goes there? Only Rifts may enter!

Visitors beware! Stop! Keep your distance!

Passwords are required to gain assistance

Children gather at the Rifts’ deep center

There to be freed of adult tormentors

Born of the Bloods’ wrathful co-existance

Comes the founding of a new Resistance

A community of young dissenters.”

Kaden and Catherine and thousands of other parents have followed their children to the nation’s capital to claim them and take them home.  But the parents are unable to contain or control their children. The Rifts take over a pleasure-ride boat, the Riverboat Queen, and head away from land.

They run from parents and resist police

Shepherdess Lizzie steers her faithful flock

While Nat’s light guides them from his rooftop lease

To the Riverboat Queen at the city’s dock

Like heroes who sailed for a shining fleece

The Rifts point their ship to a distant rock.”
