. . . because some Celtic stories won’t be contained in myth.
A little magic has always run in sixteen-year-old McKayla McCleery’s family—at least that’s what she’s been told. McKayla’s eccentric Aunt Avril travels the world as a clairvoyant for the FBI, and her mother can make amazing delicacies out of the most basic of ingredients. But McKayla doesn’t think for a second that the magic is real—it’s just good storytelling. Besides, McKayla doesn’t need magic. She recently moved to beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming, and already she has an amazing best friend, a solo in her upcoming ballet recital, and the gorgeous guy in her physics class keeps looking her way.
When an unexpected fascination with Irish dance leads McKayla to seek instruction from the mute, crippled, janitor at her high school, she learns that her family is not the only one with unexplained abilities.
After Aunt Avril comes to Star Valley in pursuit of a supernatural killer, people begin disappearing, and the lives of those McKayla holds most dear are threatened. When the janitor reveals that an ancient curse, known as a geis, has awakened powers that defy explanation, McKayla is forced to come to terms with what is real and what is fantasy.
A thrilling first novel, Awakening is a gripping contemporary fantasy, based in Celtic mythology that is rife with magic, romance, and mystery.

“What an amazing book! What great suspense and tenderness all rolled up into a compelling read.” –Amanda Dickson, KSL 1160
“Similar to the mainstream book The Lovely Bones . . . but a Heartbeat Away left me feeling very content and uplifted. . . I also liked the idea that Kristin was . . . working behind the scenes, so to speak, to help her family cope, to help find the perpetrator, and to help the spirits of the previous victims advance in the Spirit Kingdom as well. All in all, this was an excellent book, and I’m glad I read it.” –Melanie Goldmund of Kiel, Germany
“You think it’s never going to happen to you. I know because that’s how I was—untouchable. Bad things only happen to someone else. Or if something bad actually did happen, it was always something the doctor could fix with fiberglass or a pill. That’s the way it was with my family—at least until the year I turned thirteen.”
When their young daughter, Kristin, is kidnapped, Gary and Angie Marshall struggle to make sense of the unthinkable. Who could do such a thing? And why Kristin? As more time passes in their desperate search for their daughter, their hopes slowly dwindle. They are left with “if onlys” and a glaring uncertainty that damages their marriage and their relationships with their other children, especially their oldest daughter, Meghan.
Meanwhile, Kristin is having new experiences of her own. Her first job in her new “life” is to heal the hearts of her family. But doing so turns out to be more of a challenge than she ever expected. How can she get them to let her go so they can find happiness? Or can there ever be a healing after such a devastating trial?
Looming above them all is the question—who is responsible for Kristin’s disappearance? Is it their beloved uncle? Their neighbor Dale Loveridge, who once dated Angie Marshall? Or could it be Jay, the young man with a colorful past? Or perhaps someone else entirely?
Time is running out. As she blames herself for Kristin’s disappearance, Meghan turns down a road that can only lead to more unhappiness. Kristin must find a way to help her sister find healing—and perhaps love.
A novel of love and the Afterlife from an LDS Christian perspective.
