Sara, a packhorse man's wife, remembers the horror all too well and fears for the safety of her children. Only a dark-haired stranger offers help but at a price that no one will pay.

Thirteen-year-old Griffin Rinaldi seems like a normal kid. He plays basketball at the Y, and he’s just learning to talk to girls. But Griffin doesn’t feel normal. He’s been diagnosed with depersonalization disorder - he feels disconnected from his body, and at times he doesn’t know if he’s dead or alive. And it seems to be getting worse.   Following the brutal death of his abusive father, Griffin is haunted by a red-haired kid only he can see and who wants him to do things he doesn’t understand. Griffin's only sources of support are his grandfather, Soren - a regional author of Outer Banks ghost stories - and his same-age cousin, Tanner, a boy coping with his own troubled life.   When a rare blizzard strikes the Outer Banks, Griffin recognizes the red-haired boy as a vengeful specter from Soren's tales. To make matters worse, his well-meaning aunt has convinced his mother he’s under some sort of spiritual attack. Unsure if the mysterious boy is a symptom of his disorder or an entity with evil intent, Griffin finds himself in a struggle to save his life, his sanity, and maybe his very soul. 1.

She blames herself for the bounty on Papa's head. Book Two in the Dangerous Loyalties series - a historical novel for teens - continues the riveting story of Daughters of the American Revolution patriot Mary Shirley McGuire. It's late summer in the Alleghany Highlands, 1775. Colonial Virginia has resolved to support the American Revolutionary cause for liberty. The British are determined to retain control of the fur trade and keep frontiersmen fighting Indians instead of joining the Continentals. Thirteen-year-old Mary Shirley is still recovering from emotional wounds inflicted when she risked her life delivering traitorous dispatches. She trusted the wrong men, and now the family must flee Indian Creek to stay ahead of British Loyalists who seek her papa's life. But they can't risk being captured by taking the main road to Daniel Boone's trail that leads into Kentucky territory. They must endure the more dangerous and grueling hunter's path that leads to rough frontier forts along the Clinch River. Passions are ignited, friendships are formed, and shocking lessons are learned. Papa ignores the warnings to wait for other travelers, causing Mary's anxieties to worsen. Once they cross the Cumberland Gap, they're at the mercy of God and the Chickamauga Cherokee to make it to Fort Boonesborough alive. Frontiersmen tell them the settlement of Fort Boonesborough isn't defendable, and Mary doesn't want to continue. Papa is confident that the Indians are too busy preparing for winter to raid. A few days from the fort, Mary is feeling hopeful for the future. Then disaster strikes, leaving the family devastated and heartbroken. There is no other choice. Mary must lay aside paralyzing fear and excruciating pain to save her family before time runs out. Fleeing the Shadows (Dangerous Loyalties, Book Two) invites listeners to experience traveling the dangerous wilderness trails wi 1.
