Ethereal Land by Linda Brooks

Seth is five years old. He lives with his Grandpapa, Chard in a place called Ethereal Land.

Chard is a Credente and tells Seth they will one day live in another place; a place called ‘The Real World’.

One day Seth pulled at his Grandpapa's sleeve and asked, “Grandpapa, what is ‘Real’?”

“Real is for always,” replied Chard. “If something isn’t for always, why then it’s just not Real.”

Then Chard placed a strong work-worn hand over Seth’s heart as if to place something important there.

Seth tilted his head and looked up at his Grandpapa with confused eyes. Would he ever understand?

What is ‘Real’?
