Book Description

When John was seven, he found Candy dancing in the neighboring yard wearing a yellow polka-dot bikini and red rain galoshes, splashing and dancing and singing at the top of her lungs. She saved his throat from getting ripped out by her grandma’s guard dog. Good thing she did, too. It was John who raised the alarm that day, when the man who smiled with his mouth but not his eyes drove off with Candy in a cloud of dust. The police stopped whatever might have happened next in a seedy motel—a place Candy doesn’t dare remember. John rescued her, creating a bond between two friends strong enough to awaken…something.

Years later, John and Candy begin to suspect something more sinister lurking amidst the days of football glory and the nights of clandestine rendezvous. John discovers disturbing symbols from the ancient tribes indigenous to the area in his history textbook, in a local cave system, and in his very dreams. Candy uncovers a family history that is more colorful than she knew. If shades of black are colorful.
If only the two friends could foresee the danger looming before them. For another something, one much more dangerous than the first, is waking up to continue the cycle.Murder forces everyone out of sunny valley torpor, and Candy realizes that more than acquaintance connects her with the killer. When a corpse is found, gutted as if for ritual, she knows that whatever evil has overtaken her hometown is moving forward. She will have to exorcise the haunting herself—though she has no idea how—and she will need John’s predestined help to do it. Candy will have to face the memories of that seedy motel room first. At least she finally understands the power she never knew she had—a link to her departed mother and a line of healers shrouded in pre-history.

About the Author

sarahwathenphoto

Sarah Wathen is an artist turned author. She was trained in Classical Painting at the University of Central Florida, and received her Master’s in Fine Art from Parsons School of Design in New York City. If Florida was where she discovered her passion, New York was the place she found her voice. “Writing a book was my obvious next step, once I realized I’d been trying to tell stories with pictures for years,” she says about transitioning from visual artist to novelist. “Painting with words is even more fun than painting with oil.” Sarah lives in Florida with her husband, son, and at least a dozen imaginary friends from her novels. A painter at heart, her books incorporate art judicially, both in narrative content and supporting materials. Her characters are derived from the people and places that have influenced her own life—at least one beloved pet makes it into every book—but the stories they live will take you places you have never imagined, and won’t want to leave.

Who is Avraham Anouchi? An Unusual Interview

url

How do you feel about your family, now that you’re an adult?

I can’t complain. My only son is a surgeon. I have four grandchildren. After losing my first wife to cancer, I built my new life with my present wife, whose five grandchildren call me grandfather.

What do you want from life? Nothing more than I already have.

If you were granted three wishes, what would you ask for?

Health and enough time to write a master family tree for posterity.

What three things would you take to have in a Desert Island? Books, a computer and my wife.

What, in the outside world, is preventing you from getting it? I don’t want to be in a desert island.

How do you fall in love? At first sight? Over a long period? It’s history. I just fell in love.

What parts of loving come easy for you? Hard? I’m not a psychiatrist. I am an engineer.

How do you decide if you can trust someone? Experience with others? with this person? First impressions? Intuition? Do you test the person somehow? Or are you just generally disposed to trust or not to trust? I am fortunate to have learned how to evaluate people I meet. I don’t rely on intuition. I carry a conversation and measure a new person by his or her responses.

When you walk into a room, what do you notice first? Second? People and their facial expressions.

Describe yourself to me. I am six feet in height weighing 180 Lbs. I am physically active and maintain my health by eating fish most of the time.

Is one sense more highly developed than another? I wear glasses. I am hearing impaired and use hearing aids. I use captioning when I watch television. I go out to see  movies only if they are in a foreign language with subtitles.

Did you turn out the way you expected? The way your parents predicted? I don’t think my parents ever imagined that I would wind up in Harvard. I am satisfied with my education and with my professional accomplishments.

What really moves you, or touches you to the soul? My passion for Israel.

What’s the one thing you have always wanted to do but didn’t/couldn’t/wouldn’t? What would happen if you did do it?

I wanted to trace my family tree as far back as its source in Toledo Spain before the expulsion of Jews in 1492. I succeeded to reach only as far back as 1790 even after spending two days in the Madrid archives of Jewish History and in a day at the University of Aix-en-Provence archives of French Jews outside France. 

What do you consider are your strengths? Ability to learn, analyze and design new things. I hold five patents.

What do you consider are your weaknesses? Patience. I have trouble when I deal with people who are very slow. 

What is one physical attribute you are proud of? I was winner in high school sports. Nobody could beat me in High Jumps and 100-Meter races.

What one physical attribute would you change? I would be ecstatic with good hearing

What do you consider your special talent? Ability to learn, analyze and design new things. I hold five patents.

What are you most proud of about your life? Serving as Vice President of a large Corporation and founding my own corporation.

Describe your ideal mate. That would require to describe my ideal mate who lost her battle to cancer and my present wife who fills my life.

What are you most afraid of? Anti-Semitism.

If you could be an animal, what would it be? (You can adapt this question to fit the character ie/make it what kind of car, plant, whatever.)

I don’t want to be an animal. God created humans to make them different from animals by enabling them to speak, think and create a beautiful world. Why would anyone want to be an animal? I certainly don’t want to be a car or a plant. I want to be creative.
