New Xulon Historical Fiction Follows One Woman’s Unique Destiny

San Pablo, California (EastBayDaily) — In his new book, Aurora a Child of God, ($13.99, paperback, 9781498417747; $6.99, e-book, 9781498417754) Joseph N. Padilla tells an original story surrounding the plight of women in their struggles to be equal to men when speaking openly about religion. This is Aurora’s tale of courage to rise up, as God has called her to, and proclaim the teachings of Jesus in a place and time when it was completely unacceptable for women. The author’s vision comes to life within this book, and readers are challenged to boldly and fearlessly live out whatever it is that God has called them to do in their individual lives.

“In my stories, there is much history spanning beyond the death of Christ that the Lord had given me to share with my readers,” states the author. “I have created this book, and others, to share my visions of what life was like for the people in that era.”

Joseph N. Padilla has written several Christian, fiction novels. He describes his writings as coming from the heart and soul, deeply rooted in his faith. Joseph considers himself a storyteller with ideas, which he notes does not make him an expert, but certainly a creative thinker.
