#SaturdaySpotlight is on Trey Dunham
Good Morning and Welcome to another Saturday Spotlight! As you know, I'm always excited to share authors and books with you, especially when it is someone I've never spotlighted before. Today's guest is brought to us by Prime Star Publicity.
A writer, teacher, and church planter, Trey has been blogging on spiritual, family and personal topics since 2009.
Now let's find out a little about Trey's novel, The Beams of our House...
Sol 203119 hates Coupling—the forced dating and mating technique initiated across the United Cities as populations consolidated, gender tensions mounted, human reproduction plummeted, and marriage fell out of style—but he doesn’t know why. But when a fourth classmate at the Academy commits suicide, he follows the prompting of a mysterious voice and goes in search of a way out of the City for him and his classmates at the Academy.
Thousands of miles away, Lill, an orphan Wild, raised by strict and overprotective brothers, discovers she is part of an ancient prophecy that will bring to an end the longstanding battle between the Spirits of the City and Wilderness. Em, a mysterious, spiritual recluse, mentors Lill in her preparation: caring for refugees who have fled the City in search of a better life.
Able to escape the City, Sol slowly adapts to life in the difficult and dangerous Wilderness. He discovers a community of healthy, loving, committed families, but when a special ops team from the City nearly captures him, community leaders decide the time has come to unite and resurrect an ancient rite of the Spirit of the Wilderness: marriage.
Waiting anxiously for his return, a small contingent of Sol’s classmates from the Academy form an underground community in the heart of the City, which they call ‘the Banner.’ Meanwhile, Sol and Lill travel separately to witness the first wedding in centuries; the City counters with a deadly attack. In spite of massive casualties, a small remnant survives. And in a narrow underground cavern, the bruised and battered Sol and Lill meet for the first time.

Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) announced today recommendations
made to federal and state legislatures to suspend all laws and regulations
related to the issuing of marriage licenses, effectively ending a practice which
