Crabtree - Mystery/Adventure Children's Chapter Book
Pre-teen Chapter Book by Jane L. Fitzpatrick - (11-13 year olds)
"Crabtree" is a mystery/adventure about a brother and sister who are called to walk into the darkness TO BE the light. It is about making the right choices in life, it is about writing your own Chapters, it is about loving unconditionally to help others.
Twelve-year-old Sam and his sister Mel have just moved to a backward, mountain town. No Internet, no cell service, no computer games and nowhere to go. Their artist dad has inherited a dilapidated farmhouse from his uncle. Unknown to them, they’ve also inherited a 20-year old curse that has devastated the town for generations. Sam and Mel are the keys to unlocking the mystery, but there are no guarantees they’ll see their way through the darkness. Even the “NOW” can be stuck in time.
“It was like entering into a different world – one where there were only shadows and vibrating sounds coming from hidden corners.” ~Sam
Oranias was not bound
By the thoughts of man,
She wore her crown above.
Her wind was Strength,
Her rain was Truth…
Oranias, the Goddess of Love.
