The Beach House by Brenda Mize Garza Front Cover

In the beach house, a self-proclaimed gang of five kids living in quiet Shell Cove on Starfish Island while away their carefree days on the island's white beaches, building sandcastles and riding the crystal-blue ocean's waves as they crash ashore.  One day, they decide to go exploring.  They enter an old abandoned beach house and discover they have left behind the idyllic world of sunlit sand and entered a strange world of unfamiliar voices, disappearing people, and wily demons.

The author, Brenda Mize Garza, draws together two disparate worlds-the familiar realm inhabited by people with faith in God and the domain of demons whose plans oppose the Lord.  She explores what happens when these two realms touch down in the lives of five young people.

The kids' curiosity leads them into the terrain of a longstanding battle. They come to appreciate what Ms. Martha, the town librarian, tells them about the reasons Paul the apostle had in mind when he counseled the Christians in Ephesus, writing "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."

The Beach House promises to delight it's readers with the tale of the companionship of five curious young people and to challenge them with the ramifications of discovering a place where the kingdoms of good and evil cross paths and the ensuing conflict leaves no person unchanged.
