Born into a world of degradation and fear, yet surrounded by the natural beauty of the antediluvian environment, Aloma, child of the hermitage, believing that nothing of any great significance would ever affect the peace and tranquility of her solitude away from the rest of the world, decides to occupy her time by keeping a diary.
As she records the every-day events in her life she suddenly finds herself caught up in the dangerous and fast-moving world of the Devas, the fallen angelic ones who have joined with Satanas the Prince of Darkness.
Suffering the death of her father by the Devas, Aloma and her mother find themselves swept along with the evil and corruption which pervades the Earth as it emanates from Balonia, the central city of the world.
Transported to Balonia, Aloma encounters a woman who tells her a strange story. She also hears of one known as the Prophet who is building an unusual vessel called the Teva.
Events move on as she is drawn further into the affairs of those surrounding her including a marriage, a coronation and even a celestial war, as things move towards a final grand climax.
Suddenly the moment arrives, the storm-clouds break and as the Earth heaves under a great Deluge of water. The stars and other heavenly bodies are un-veiled for the first time, Aloma acquires the gift of prophecy and the first ever rainbow appears in the sky.
Aloma eventually dies and her son, Javan, recounts how the crown of nobility which she refused while alive, is laid at her burial. Also the sign of the Arbor Vitae which she saw in her dying vision, is sculpted upon the walls of her tomb.
Her diary, which she always referred to as her journal, is encased with her. With this the words of Javan are ended.
