Anna is devastated by a fire that left her orphaned, dependent on an uncle she never knew existed and far from the only home she has ever known. Brendan struggles with a life limited by crippling illness and a family torn by the loss of his mother. Tzutz Nik faces an arranged marriage to the prince of a ruthless dynasty in order to unite their fractured kingdoms.
A mysterious invitation gives them each an opportunity to escape their struggles for a while and view their lives from a new perspective. Deep in a remote jungle, amid long-forgotten ancient ruins, they discover the true meaning of sacrifice. In the shadows, a relentless evil presence lurks, threatening to lead them astray. Will they triumph over their adversary or be trapped in his web of lies?
“In the footsteps of The Chronicles of Narnia, this story is rich in symbols of Christianity and allusions to faith and temptation!”
“The emotional journey the three protagonists undergo is at once heartbreaking and encouraging.”
Author note: The Place of Voices has Christian allegory similar to C. S. Lewis’s The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, with time travel aspects akin to Madeleine L’Engle’s Time Quintet. The Mayan history and characters are factual with fictionalized details. I enjoy blending fantasy with reality.
