The book that inspired the multimedia app—Digital Book World’s 2015 winner for Best Adult Fiction App—Rich Shapero’s The Hope We Seek.
Zachary Knox, a sharpshooter known as “the Bull’s-Eye Telepath,” heads north in search of gold. On his way he meets Sephy, a magnetic woman on the trail of her lost brother. But on arrival, they find the mining camp is home to a shadowy mining company. The mine boss, Trevillian, rules the camp like a despotic priest, and at the centre of his faith is Hope, an elusive goddess for whom the miners toil, enduring increasingly perilous trials as they pursue her into the depths of the earth.
The Hope We Seek transports us to a netherworld of danger and allure—where arduous labor, sustained by unwavering belief, promises an unearthly reward. Shapero holds a dark mirror to the passions that drive us, and the extremes to which we go to find meaning in our lives.
Rich Shapero is a writer whose storytelling projects pioneer unseen worlds. At the heart of his stories are vast wildernesses, populated by mercurial private gods who promise deliverance to truer, more profound states of being.
