It is the year 2021 and Kaela is twenty-three years old when her father shares his secret about an extraordinary event that changed his very existence fifteen years earlier. She was taught many lessons in moral principles growing up, but it's rare that the most profound of them would be put to the test. A convergence of events gives her father the opportunity to teach her one of the greatest lessons of all. |
Although it is written to stand on its own, To Your Own Self Be True is a sequel to The Room, published in 2007 and features some of the characters from that novel. The events in The Room take place fifteen years earlier when our narrator, the grown up young scientist Kaela, is just 8 years old. Her father Harry – humanitarian, self-taught scientist, deeply committed to reason vs. superstition – experiences an extraordinary cosmic event in a bedroom of his dying mother’s home. From then on, nothing is ever the same.
