I am excited to announce that the second book in The Prophecy saga is expected to be released on Amazon in May 2019. On the heels of The Crest, which was published in December 2018, comes The Emerald:
In the fall of 1928, Nicolai Kota leads his caravan of nomads into the community of Liegnitz, in Southern Silesia, Germany. As in the past, they expected to display their talents at the annual fair. In a matter of days, the Kota family is forced to make a hard decision when nine-year-old Punita’s safety is compromised.
While the caravan resumes its cyclical tour throughout Europe, Punita remains in Liegnitz to live with Nicolai’s cousin, Alexi Puchinski, and attend school. When the caravan returns six years later, Punita’s schooling is complete, and she is a young woman in love.
Days later, the travellers find themselves in jeopardy, forced to dissolve the caravan, and flee for their safety. Nicolai takes Punita and his wife, Rosalee, to Schinawa, where he hopes to meet an old friend, Konstantin Anker, who will take them to Amsterdam. Before their plans are complete, Nicolai is caught in a round-up of undesirables, and Punita and Rosalee are forced to embark upon a sea voyage to Amsterdam without him.
In Amsterdam, Punita and her mother are welcomed by Konstantin’s family, but even there tragedy awaits, and Punita finds herself having to eke out an unusual life in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
