Moonrise at Daybreak

By Stephen Packer

Hybrid & other, Religion & spirituality, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


What happens when good animals stand by and do nothing? Evil flourishes. All is content and peaceful at Daybreak Farm until a small group of goats arrive. The newcomers, whilst outwardly urging tolerance and respect, use a strict interpretation of their religious beliefs to control the other groups of animals and run the farm for their personal benefit. By claiming that any animal speaking against them is clovenophobic, they are able to shrug off any criticism and continue with their reign of indoctrination, thereby discouraging individuality and brushing aside any animal that dares to stand in their way. By brainwashing the young animals on the farm, they are able to assemble a group of supporters who will follow them without question. Two chickens, Croaker and Scarlett, supported by a number of sheep, seek to expose the actions of the goats in an attempt to restore tolerance, respect, equality and diversity to the farm. But can they succeed when no animal is prepared to listen?

This is Stephen's first novel and is a story he felt he had to tell. From a very young age he had doubts about religion and even at primary school he didn't believe some of the stories he was told. He has studied philosophy and consequently spent a great deal of time wondering what it really means to be a good person. Recent experiences caused him to challenge the role of religion in dictating how people should live their lives. As a result he discovered humanism and found that its principles match his own. Moonrise At Daybreak is a humanist story told through the lives of farm animals. Stephen regards the fable as possibly an 'Animal Farm' for the twenty-first century.
