Author Biography

Hi Everyone!

I’m about to release a new trilogy in the C-series, The Call to See, The Call to be a Tree, and The Call to be Free. I’m so excited!!I hope you’ll check them out! The Call to See is now available!The C- series begins with the Code trilogy: The Code of Destiny, The Code of Dignity, and The Code of Deliverance. I believe the Code is the answer to ending violence. It's an old Code ...we all know it, but for some reason don't follow it. We say we do, but, honestly, it's really hard to do. That's why I wrote the Core trilogy hopes of getting to the heart of the matter. The Core Trilogy comprises of The Core of Knowledge, The Core of Change, and The Core of the Soul.

Happy reading,

Sara Enochs

Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite

A story that spans generations, The Call To See by Sara Enochs is the story of Ava Andrews and her legacy of helping save the world from environmental destruction, all through her elaborate daydreaming. The early chapters begin where we are introduced to her life and her musings about existence. She tries to answer why she is put here on Earth, and what is her heart’s desire and mind’s purpose. According to a Jesuit priest, some of Ava’s family members possess exceptional minds that operate on a different frequency, and this allows them to be uniquely connected with each other, nature, and God. In the future, global warming has reached its peak of destruction, and people have lost everything. The code that Ava cracked years ago may well be the key to fix everything, but it remains to be seen if there is enough time.

If you are a firm believer in God’s grace and at the same time enjoy science fiction, The Call to See is a reading treat that you should not miss. Sara Enochs has written a brilliant allegorical tale about faith and renewal. You cannot help but be impressed that Enochs managed to illustrate such elaborate daydreaming, where Ava’s bloodline is presented with their own realities. At the end of the story, Enochs treats you to some open-ended questions for group discussion to see how well you picked up on the spiritual message that the story conveys. This is a highly-recommended story where belief and science fiction intertwine. Enochs asks at the end of the story if you daydream - it never hurts to try.

In the provocative science fiction novel The Call to See by Sarah Enochs, the earth's population has generated a course for planetary destruction and extinction of all life, and one family has the code that can heal it; if only they can decipher it. Concerned for the earth's environment, Scott Ballantyne spends his life inventing and patenting devices that will heal the planet. However, someone doesn't want him to succeed and sabotages his efforts. His wife Kate inherited a numerical code, handed down in her family for generations, that has the power to cure and restore the earth, but sadly, up until now, no one has been able to decrypt it. While meditating, Ava, Scott and Kate's daughter, envisions the future and the devastating consequences of environmental destruction. Is there anything she and her family can do to stop the spiraling decline of the planet? Or is it already too late?

Eloquently depicting the death of the earth and the portending extinction of humanity, The Call to See by Sarah Enochs is a dramatic and extraordinary science fiction novel. Containing the religious aspects of Bible verses, faith in God, prayer, and the devil himself blending with technology, human arrogance, and the ecological demise of the planet, it is an absorbing story that captivates and fires the imagination. With exciting and horrific implications relating to the earth's current conditions, the book is disturbing as well as eye-opening. The likable characters and gripping plot create an inspiring tale that promises to entertain everyone who enjoys science fiction novels with a strong Christian undertone. The intimacy within the storyline is tastefully suggested without explicit or graphic details and can be read and enjoyed by young adults and upward.

The Call to See by Sara Enochs is science fiction written from a unique perspective, quite different from the run-of-the-mill narratives. Ava Andrews is a woman who has had pain in her life — losing Zack, her brother, who was only twenty-one at the time he was murdered, having children born with autism, and seeing her parents suffer after the murder of her brother. She grew up nurturing a dream to save the world and she believed she had discovered the code to help her heal life and restore Earth. Now, after spending years on the code to end violence, she has the startling revelation that she has had the code all along — forgiveness. But how can forgiveness restore the soul of Earth and of humanity? This story delivers surprising answers and takes readers on a journey that is entertaining, mind-boggling, scientific, and spiritual at the same time.

This message is relevant today more than at any other time in mankind’s history, and the author does a wonderful job in creating a protagonist that is mindful of the threats of climate change and imbued with an irresistible longing to heal the planet. Ava is a well-developed character. Her experience of loss constitutes a moment of awakening and a strong premise for this engaging story. The story introduces readers to a cast of interesting characters, including Shelby, Ava’s husband, Jake, Betsy, Abraham, Georgia, Beth, Nate, Marley, Clint, and Eli. The story is told in the first-person narrative voice and it allows not only the points of view of the characters to come across in the writing distinctly but also enhances character development. The Call to See does not feature rocket science; nonetheless, it compels readers to reflect on acts that can heal relationships and mend human connection with nature. It is one of the few books that I strongly recommend.

Ava Andrews is a mom and a woman with a dream to heal life on the planet. After the murder of her brother, Zack, she experiences intense suffering and watches her parents suffer the loss as well. But something beautiful happens in her soul: an irresistible thirst to find the cure for violence, and, perhaps, the one thing that can restore life and health on Earth which faces insurmountable threats from the environmental crisis. The discovery that she has known the code to cure violence all along is exhilarating and all she wants is to use the same code to heal Earth. The Call to See by Sara Enochs is a mesmerizing tale that explores themes of global warming, family, cohabitating with nature, and a lot more. The theme of forgiveness is at the heart of the code and it is developed in a way that is both impressive and eye-opening for the reader. The story explores the question: What is the single thing we all need to do to keep Earth healthy and save lives?

This is a wonderful narrative and it has a strong appeal to fans of science fiction and readers who want to explore the implications of womanhood, parenting, environmental themes, and how to deal with violence. The story takes readers on a ride through the life of the protagonist and allows them to witness her as she lives her life as a wife, mother, and grandmother. The premise is very strong and poses the question: What if we had a simple code that can allow us to heal Earth? The story features many voices, each character giving their point of view. The prose is gorgeous and the entire narrative features engaging dialogues. Sara Enochs has a great gift for character and creating dynamics in relationships between the characters is a noticeable trait in the story. The Call to See is both inspiring and entertaining, a story with well-developed characters and strong themes. It is one of those stories that will force readers to think about their response to the earth’s crisis while enjoying the company of memorable characters.

The Call To See by Sara Enochs is the story of a woman who hopes to change the course of climate change for the sake of her children. Ava Andrews has simple dreams that are very hard to achieve. She wants to give her children a good life and preserve Earth. She hopes to save Earth, but it seems like she is the only one who is obsessed with saving Earth. But climate change becomes a monster that Ava cannot fight alone and she needs to think of something, anything to protect the world. The quest is not easy and Ava is not expecting it to be easy too. But does she have what it takes to defy the odds and bring about the change that she hopes? She has the most unusual ways to stop climate change. Only time will tell, but Ava will have to trust her instincts if she wants her plan to work.

I love how Sara Enochs wrote The Call To See in three parts and gave multiple points of view to bring more essence to the story. Ava is not the quintessential protagonist. While the science fiction genre always has tortured protagonists who are almost always trying to fight off an intergalactic villain, Ava stands out for her pure intentions. The story is very unconventional and that is what I loved about it. Ava’s struggle with herself and her fight for something she dearly believed in add to her overall development. Her race against/through time to find the answers she is looking for is valid and very well-managed. Ava makes this story more than just science fiction. The author brings in emotions, drama, and faith to make Ava a believable character. This is a fantastic story that readers of all ages will love.

Imagine a world, really not too far off in the future, that portrays every fear that everyone shares but really hardly talk about. As Ava struggles with present-day internal struggles, and spiritual imbalance she sets off in thought transporting you 50 years into the future. Without realizing it three lineages have come to pass and have been pivotal cogs in the wheel that will be the earth's destiny. This story leaves the reader wanting to know more while also leaving a lasting thoughtful impression with the underpinning message. So many topics are addressed, mental health, spiritual imbalance, the struggle in relationships, and as parents.. I am so excited to see where this storyline goes next!

The sign of a really great story (for me) is one that I am still thinking about for days after reading it, contemplating the significance of its impact on my own life. That is what this story has done for me! Beautifully written!!
