From the metropolitan streets of Dubai, Daniella is called back to her family home in the American South to help a family that threw her away many years ago. Going back will mean digging up skeletons from her past that she'd hoped to bury forever, but someone murdered her father, and skeletons don't like living in closets.
Dedra Stevenson is the author of The Hakima's Tale trilogy, Tales of the Lantern, Antar and Haider, and Magnolia Grove. Living in the Middle East had always provided Dedra with a great treasure of folklore and imaginative stories to gain inspiration from.
Will she go home to help her family? The same family that threw her aside all those years ago? Her life in Dubai was comfortable and enriching, but there was a hole in her heart, something that couldn't be filled unless she courageously goes back to face her past.
Daniella sat in her beautiful office and closed her eyes, breathing deeply. As much as she tried, she could only think of all the demons of the past that she’d left behind in Georgia. There was so much history there—the happy memories of childhood mixed with the horrific memories of her young adult years.
