by James H. Smith IV
When Paulie Drake, a vibrant and generous, smart little girl, moves with her family to Sanhedrin, her father Vernon plans to build them a better life—literally—as an architect employed by one of the country’s freedmen’s towns looking to expand during a time of prosperity.
Yes, life in Sanhedrin will surely be better for her and her family.
But this notion of a better life shatters when Paulie finds herself the victim of a witch’s curse—one that threatens the peace and well-being of the town of Sanhedrin, and all the people in it. Can she break the curse, or will darkness consume her and the town?
