Author(s): Nikki McWatters
"In 1628, Veronica and her brother flee for their lives into the German woods after their father is burned at the stake. At the dawn of the eighteenth century, Scottish maid Katherine is lured into political dissent after her parents are butchered for their beliefs. In present-day Australia, Paisley navigates her way through the burning torches of small-town gossip after her mother's new-age shop comes under scrutiny."
"Nikki McWatters has had an adventurous life from television acting to working for a billionaire to being homeless and living in a tent with her young family. The one constant in her life has been her passion for the written word. After completing a law degree in 2009, she changed her mind about her career direction and dared herself to follow her dream of becoming a published author. After a shortlisting at the Queensland Premier's Literary Awards exactly one year later in 2010, followed by a memoir published in 2012, a young adult novel in 2014 and a new one ready to go in 2016 ... she finally feels like she's on the right path. She is a writer and loving it. nikkimcwatters.wordpress.com"
