I've been working on the second book in The Lady of the Haven series (again) and I began to wonder what it would be like to disappear in one place and suddenly appear in another. Sort of like what happened to Philip in Acts 8. You remember the story, after he had followed the prompting of the Holy Spirit to go into the desert, he met an Ethiopian eunuch, preached to him and baptized him.
Then Philip disappeared. He was found at Azotus, which was a good ways off. He must have hit the ground running! He began immediately to preach and teach in his new location.
What does this have to do with my second book? The same thing happens to my main character in A Gathering of Eagles, the second book in The Lady of the Haven series. Jael leaves one place and ends up in another.
So I was wondering how it would feel and what kind of circumstance would cause such an event?
First, how would it feel? Disorienting? Would you freak out?
Then, what kind of circumstance would cause such an event? Deep need? This would seem the most logical. Philip was badly needed elsewhere.
If you have other ideas and/or answers regarding these two questions, please feel free to leave me a comment.
