Jesse Carpenter

Jesse Carpenter is the seventeen-year-old adopted son of Joe and Malia Carpenter, missionaries who have traveled the world sharing the love of God. The Carpenters took care of Jesse when he was delivered to the mission they were working at, helping to relocate Syrian refugees in Europe. At the age of three, Jesse lost both of his biological parents during their crossing of the Aegean Sea. They were fleeing the civil unrest in Syria and Jesse washed up on Greece’s shore alone but alive.

Jesse traveled with his adoptive parents, doing missions work and being homeschooled, until the family was called back home to the United States where Jesse is enrolled for the first time ever in public school. His unconventional upbringing, along with his abilities of persuasion and hearing the voice of God, make it hard for him to understand traditional American teenage culture.

He is now faced with uncovering his destiny while trying to fit in.

About tracieroberts

It's been a few years since I wrote this profile and, in that time, I've grown as a writer and a person. I still love to read, but writing is now my passion (behind my God and my family). I still teach English (in my 17th year), and I still live in Florida with my husband, two daughters, and multiple pets. What has changed is that I've published my first New Adult novel, ECHO, with a second in the series on the way, as well as a couple of novellas and that stand-alone, now titled Second Chance. 2015 is going to be a busy year for me! I hope you hang with me and see where this year takes us. ~Be blessed.
