-Matthew J. Goldberg, author of Hot Ice Cream: Inspiring Life Lessons from Our Children
A great imaginative story with characters I really cared about. I finished this book with a lump in my throat, I love it. I absolutely love it. Prophet’s End has tremendous imagination, tremendous heart and a story that really resonates.
-Bill Hall, author of McCallandia
Prophet’s End is a tale for our times, bringing together two individuals with unusual powers, a young man who has the gift of seeing into the future, and the young woman who inhabited his dreams and holds his heart from the age of 6 years. That young woman has a power of her own, to take the world and all that it brings with an unbridled optimism. Mr. Russell’s story has the heart of a modern day Chasidic tale, with a magical ending.

Billy Farrell is a typical 1950s New York City kid. He loves the Brooklyn Dodgers and egg creams from the soda shop. He’s an okay student. Then one day Billy begins having strange dreams—dreams that are anything but typical.
Prophet’s End is a tale of hope and faith, even from the rubble of despair; a magical story which demonstrates that we cannot change what will be, let alone alter the here and now. Yet even against the odds, Billy’s story offers hope for a better future, shining like a beacon just beyond the present.
