Overview

Kate's will was cast of iron and that was a blessing, because from birth her life was littered with obstacles. No sooner had she cleared one hurdle than another dropped in front of her. In her primary years of school Kate Keefer was an unattractive, tall gangly girl-the butt of jokes from classmates. To avoid their hurtful jibes, she erected a protective shield around her that barbs failed to penetrate. However, despite the mockery, Kate held her head high, sailed through high school and three years of college before her path became totally obstructed.

She was desperate for help, but when that help arrived it was shrouded in a mysterious darkness. From this darkness emerged the answer to the person Kate really was, and it sent her reeling, causing her life to take a rapid downward spiral. When she clawed her way from that chasm, by sheer grit and dauntless courage, Kate knew she was a survivor. Problems had bred strength in her and provided her with wisdom and magnanimity. But were they enough to force her from behind that shield to accept the beautiful love and life that awaited her?

Author Biography: 

Jessie Wise resides in Jacksonville Beach, Florida but spent most of her adult life in a rural section of North Central Florida. From the kindred souls in the pastoral region of the Suwannee River Valley, native of South Georgia, Jessie learned early in life to love and appreciate nature in its simplicity. The author is the mother of three lovely daughters and grandmother to seven.

An avid reader, and wanna-be writer all of her life, she finally became serious with her craft and wrote her first novel, At the River's Edge, which placed first in the unpublished category of Family Saga at the Florida Writers Association, Inc., Conference in Orlando, Florida in 2002. Tainted Blood won second place at the Florida Writers Association, Inc., Conference in 2003 in the unpublished category. The author's third novel, Mender of Souls, is scheduled for release in 2005.
