Unearthly Passion, written under my pen name Vincy Page, is a unique novel for New Adults aged 18 to 28. In her search for meaning, identity and love, fostered student Natalie Parsons gets into terrible scrapes during her geophysics course at Edinburgh University, until God eventually works a miracle in her life to rescue her from disaster.

Unearthly Passion provides an ideal preparation for young people about to enter university, and for youngish adults who are thinking about the purpose of life on earth, or whether God is real and can be known personally.

This is a great book for those getting ready to leave home and makes you think about what really matters when pressures come from every angle.

I did enjoy reading this book. It’s partly about the behaviour of a young girl who had been brought up in a very oppressive family situation and then goes off to University. She overreacts and gets into ‘all sorts of trouble’. She was extremely fortunate to meet some ‘good’ people as well as the ‘bad’ selfish ones. Eventually ‘good’ wins and the ending is quite a relief.
I suspect it wouldn’t be always as good in real life and as such it’s a nice change from the usual nasty commercial story lines that appeal to quite a lot of the general population.
To intertwine so called ‘bad bad’ with ‘good good’ is very brave and a clever way of introducing the real meaning of life.

Unearthly Passion is a challenging work of new adult fiction penned by author Vincy Page. Focusing on the themes of student life in Great Britain, personal life choices, their consequences, and the possibility of coming to religion in the form of committing to Jesus Christ, this is a deep and insightful narrative about morality and human nature. Natalie Parsons comes from a difficult background, desperate for loving affection, friendship, and acceptance. At university, she rebels at the first chance she gets, beginning a tale of decision-making that leads her into a deepening spiral. The promise of God seems like her only way out, and it then becomes a question of whether she can take that path or not.

Taking the biblical themes of temptation and sin into a modern context, there is much observation of the modern world in Vincy Page’s work which is sad, but true. The narrative style keeps things open, neither condemning nor vindicating Natalie’s initial actions, or those of the friends she makes along the way at Edinburgh University. The cultural references to Great Britain, and particularly the Scottish drinking culture, are harrowingly accurate, and the message of hope provided by the acceptance of Jesus Christ is clear and to the point. At times, this feels more like a story intended for discussion than one to be read for entertainment, but that holds its own value in the hands of the right audience. Overall, Unearthly Passion will provide a thought-provoking read for many young people about to enter this part of their lives.

Told in an engaging first-person point of view, Unearthly Passion by Vincy Page tells the inspiring story of Natalie Parsons. Her painful background of abandonment explains her search for freedom and love. Natalie’s growth through the plot is inspiring and is also emotive. The plot uses dialogues effectively to tackle a technical topic on the origin of the earth through creation without sounding dogmatic. Through Natalie’s experiences, the transformative power of the Gospel is also revealed. Supporting characters are also well developed. They are unique in their development and they help move the work forward. Unearthly Passion by Vincy Page is uplifting through its powerful lessons.

I loved the protagonist Natalie Parsons. Her quest for answers... reminded me of my younger self, seeking answers to questions that ultimately just can’t be answered with any kind of satisfying certainty. Her experiences with her foster parents, religion, sex and drugs were relevant and eerily similar to mine, an African American man. I found this fascinating.
