THE SPIRIT KEEPERS: A Native American Romantic Mystery
As of January 2014, any income from the sale of The Spirit Keepers will be donated to help support the Zuni Pueblo Youth Enrichment Program
Can you escape the wrath of the spirits?
After relinquishing her infant son for adoption, Sandy Jacobs vows she will never let another child down. Now, in an attempt to start life over and put the past behind her, she moves from Philadelphia to teach on the San Sebastian Pueblo in New Mexico.
When one of her ten year old students and his family are accused of witchcraft and blamed for the mysterious deaths of two
Pueblo children, Sandy has the chance to fulfill her promise. The family is being terrorized by "Boogeymen" Kachina, fierce-looking impersonators of the spirits. Sandy rushes to their aid, but her actions inflame the perpetrators and arouse the opposition of Native born faculty member, Ben Rush.
Sandy and Ben clash over the issue while struggling against the attraction
growing between them until the harassment culminates in violence. Together they risk their lives to uncover the truth and, in the process, learn lessons as valuable as any they have taught.
Don't miss the chance to read this equally heartwarming and harrowing
story, set against a backdrop of mesas, mystery and the magic of the Southwest.
