A saga begins...
After returning from a year of college studies abroad, Lacey moves into her grandparents' home that is right beside her great-grandparents' old farmhouse. The old farmhouse is supposed to be empty, but Lacey continues to notice lights coming on and going off during wee hours of the night. Lacey invites her thirteen-year-old cousin, Jillie, to come and help her investigate and spend time with her on the farm. The girls not only discover a mother cat and her two kittens, but hidden tunnels and stairs and an uncle who has been missing for ten years. What do the girls discover about these cats? Where do these stairs and tunnels lead? Where has their Uncle Jake been all these years? It's magical, it's a mystery; it is a magical mystery that leads Lacey and Jillie to be united, by a destiny, determined many centuries before their time. (Published 2009)
This arrowhead, which one of Laura Beth's brothers found as a child, was also an inspiration to writing this family saga. How else to make a story exciting but to add a bit of magic to sometihing so rare that holds a history all in itself. Laura Beth wonders who actually made this and how old could it really be.
The necklace, which adorns the book cover of "JILLIE And Her Sassy Cat", is also something Laura Beth's brother gave her from his finds. He has an unbelievable hobby of searching for unique treasures at auctions, tag sales, etc. Check out his eBay site for great collectibles: guilf's Store noted below.
She hopes to bring some excitement to young people and help them find adventures in their own back yard. Maybe a tree you hide behind, as you play hide and seek, was used as a hiding place many years ago. Or maybe, someone took a rest from their travels and rested against the tree. Hence, the oak tree that Laura Beth uses in her story.
The saga continues...
