Charles is a sad and lonely boy. For years, he is beaten down and abused by his family. Two things keep him going — his grandmother and his yearning to change his circumstance.
Cora is a pampered little girl; she is also a drama queen.
These two children have one thing in common. Their families hide incredible … supernatural secrets. Some members of their families can make things just disappear, others seem to kill and maim at will.
The backdrop for this narrative is Jamaica. The island boasts rugged high mountains, mineral springs with curative powers, white coral beaches, and cold drenching waterfalls. Spicy foods, unusual plants and trees, exotic fruits, and the irrepressible Jamaican people, play their part in the magic that is Jamaica. The reader will be transported to a different world — a world where paranormal occurrences are not that unusual.
Although this is young adult fiction, it will also appeal to readers who enjoy some intrigue and suspense, a few tears and a good laugh. This is a tale of love, loss, oppression, escape, and redemption."
