To a remote island comes a young woman seeking answers to the questions that have plagued her mind for the past ten years. But will the knowledge she seeks only serve to draw her deeper into the labyrinth of mystery and magic that lies sleeping beneath Mateguas' pristine exterior?
And will her mother be, once again, caught in a vicious web of love, jealousy, betrayal, and revenge that will make it impossible for her to shield her daughter from the dark forces that may ultimately seek to consume and destroy them both?
Journey with Karen Andersen and her family back to the mythos, passion, and magic - RETURN TO MATEGUAS ISLAND!
Praise for RETURN TO MATEGUAS:
"This is a quick-paced story portraying a wide range of human emotions, deadly supernatural forces and ancient Native American beliefs that may help the characters survive the ordeal in store. It explores the depths of love and loss, dedication and defiance, innocence and desire - all in spite of the threat of losing everything. This is supernatural fiction at its best with a hint of coming-of-age enlightenment to appeal to younger readers as well as readers of all ages." ~ Melinda Hills for READERS' FAVORITE
"The real power in Return To Mateguas Island lies not so much in its inclusion of supernatural rituals as in its exploration of simmering emotions that lay just under the surface...Thus, its power and strength are most evident in its explorations of interpersonal relationships...the supernatural force described serves as a catalyst for events; not the end-all of these explorations. And it's the centrifuge of a whirlwind of emotional forces that swirl around all involved in the backdrop that is Mategaus Island and its mystical heritage ... the compelling draw of the island and its mysteries create suitable devices for a novel that excels in emotional interconnections with a dash of supernatural suspense added in for good measure." ~ D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer, MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
