SEVEN DAYS IN CARRINGTON – CAMP CARRINGTON
Volume 6 of the literary fiction series SEVEN DAYS IN CARRINGTON, 'CAMP CARRINGTON' was released by Rebecca Templeman, a resident of Albemarle County. Like the previous novels, season six chases current events that threaten legal intervention, the rule of law, and the asylees' pathway to citizenship. Anne Carter Thomas, the protagonist from Volume 1 and her tight-knit circle of friends, rescue the historic Meyer Mansion as the unlikely place to fix immigration. It's a new decade, and a slice in time that can make or break the lives of thousands of Central Americans.
The 'CAMP' is the clever acronym for Cultural Assimilation Model Program - the brainchild of K-Rey and Andrew Marshall. Together with Donald J. Trump, they form a unique partnership in Carrington, Virginia. When the new residents arrive for Camp, all of America is watching for how provincial Carrington will adapt to the new neighbors. But the program is also a target for the Deep State's tight grip on immigration gridlock, especially in an election year. Gracing the grounds at the historic Meyer Mansion, and bankrolled by billions of dollars in private funding, CAMP CARRINGTON debuts, unlike any other government program. Within hours of opening day, Swamp Agents are dispersed to sabotage the Campers' dreams. But in the life of G.G. Guerrero - a poster girl for one success story, the fast-paced narrative offers a streamlined, beautiful highway of hospitality.
With real-time urgency, Templeman wrote Volume 6 during the Pandemic of 2020. She set the tale in mid-February of 2020, days before the COVID-19 health pandemic would shut down the entire world. As the nation of new immigrants would soon experience the loss of jobs, income, and hope, Templeman did not want Americans to forget the plight of an asylee population that does not receive any public assistance.
"In this season of Carrington, I propose a plausible solution, when money is no object and politics get pushed out of the way. Unfolding is a dignified program for assimilation success. It requires a lot of money, unconditional love, and caring for friends. Like all innovative programs, it is met with a nasty resistance by the Washington Establishment. In the end, the reader must ask, is it worth the fight?"
