Welcome to Sydney Frusti’s Project Jumpstart, where friends, family, peers, and followers are able to support Sydney underwrite her publishing journey!
The book under way is currently titled Lily’s Passage (which may change in the editing and publication process). A blend of familiar fantasy tropes with fresh perspectives and conflicts, it approaches coming-of-age themes from a Christian perspective and incorporates historically inspired elements into the worldbuilding (such as floriography, made popular by the Victorians). The story illustrates the powerful concept that people are not defined by the past but by the way they learn from it.
Racial prejudice and the misunderstanding of magic has led the fantasy kingdom of Alderdale to be torn apart by civil war. Two unlikely heroes rise from obscurity to undertake a journey of discovery about themselves, the past, and the truth being hidden behind years of darkness. What they discover will shape the future of the land.
