Sara Kramer, who doubts everything, is pursued by two men of opposite but equally strong faiths: a New Age psychic healer and a fundamentalist preacher. When Sara refuses the preacher's proposal, he blames the psychic healer. Believing the psychic has put a curse on Sara and she is now possessed by demons, the preacher vows to save her, no matter what laws he has to break.
Hazel Hart, a retired English teacher, has been writing since she was a teenager and has won awards for her short fiction.

Cordelia's Journey is her first historical novel. She is currently working on Book 3 of the Pierce Family Saga, Hiram's Boy.
As Sara becomes certain she is being followed, she reviews the list of people who might have a motive.
Sara huddled in the easy chair in front of her bedroom window, watching dark night give way to a new day. Even though the room was warm, she shivered and drew a blanket tighter around her shoulders. How had she suddenly become a target for so many people? Hugging her knees to her chest, she stared at the telephone on the nightstand, her mind racing with ugly possibilities. Had Garth been the one who followed her from the convenience store? Given their closeness at the river, she couldn't believe he had, but he'd called in the middle of the night and been so confident she was still awake. Were he and Madame Celeste in league with Fiske and trying to frighten her off her investigations? She sighed and rested her forehead on her knees. There were others with clearer motives: Junior, Fiske's cousin Angela, and Kevin Warner's father.
