This sterling silver ring is one of a kind and was inspired by "The Passage" by Justin Cronin which I read for the Etsy Metal Book Club Challenge.

I created this ring for Cronin's character Sara. As I was reading the book I wasn't aware of what an impact her character was making on me, but when I think back on the story now, I think about Sara a good deal. It's a sort of reminder that although her reality is one of monsters and teeth, fear and survival, there is still room to hope for more, just as she did as a child.

From The Passage:
Teacher sealed the door behind them. A curious and premature pause; Sara had
expected more. Where was she going? she asked Teacher. Would it be a long journey?
Was someone coming for her? How long was she to wait here, in this room? But Teacher
seamed not to hear these questions. She crouched before her, positioning her large, soft
face close to Sara's. Little Sara, she asked, what do you suppose is out there, outside this
building, beyond the rooms where you live? And what of the men you sometimes see, the
ones who come and go at night, watching over you? Teacher was smiling, but there was
something different about this smile, thought Sara, something that made her afraid. She
didn't want to answer, but Teacher was looking straight at her, her face expectant. Sara
thought of her mother's eyes, the night she asked her where she slept. A castle? she said,
for in her sudden nervousness that was the only thing she could think of. A castle, with a
moat? A castle, Teacher said. I see. And what else little Sara? The smile was suddenly
gone. I don't know, said Sara. Well, Teacher said, and cleared her throat. It's not a castle.
