Death is for the dead… unless you’ve lived before.
After finding what appears to be an ancient, Celtic necklace, Bridget and her best friend Celena have the strange feeling they’ve seen the pendant before–a long, long time ago. This, and the unusual familiarity they’ve felt ever since they met, leads them to ask questions and trace their find back to its source.
In Wales, Bridget is compelled to an eerie, megalithic structure and suddenly finds herself in another time and place–as Enid, the dark-haired servant girl she was thousands of years ago. She is immersed in her horrid past and forced to relive it, helpless to avert the tragedy, save her dearest friend or even herself.
Waking at dawn inside the ring of stones, she and Celena begin to embark upon the true adventure laid out before them. They need to right the past not only for themselves, but for a much higher purpose–and Paul, a mysterious stranger who jealously guards his own secrets, may be able to help them…
Not all prisons are escapable.
Thousands of miles from ancient Celtic Britain, Bridget awakens as a Sumerian girl standing outside the Great Ziggurat of Ur. She can’t understand where Celena is or what any of this has to do with her and their history in Wales. Her pendant has disappeared and she has no way back.
Feeling trapped in this arid land so far removed from Wales or the US, Bridget’s problems extend beyond locating her friend or finding an exit door. Her parents are forcing her to prepare for an arranged marriage, and if she doesn’t follow through, the consequences will be severe. She can’t see how to stop the tidal wave that’s threatening to engulf her life. There are many kinds of prisons, and not all of them are escapable. But when Bridget meets Relan, all of that changes.
In the blazing heat of Sumerian summer, a beautiful, pale stranger explores the marketplace of Ur, asking peculiar questions of the merchants and speaking in a strange accent. Wearing a woolen cloak over his animal skin tunic, this “barbarian” is from elsewhere and has unusual ideas. Bridget’s curiosity leads her down an alluring and dangerous path. She is afraid to find out the answers she longs for, until Relan shows her something unbelievable, wonderful, and frightening. Just as Bridget thinks she has a solution to her problems, she is faced with a disturbing choice that may cause a shift in her destiny which can’t be undone.

Bridget’s future depends on helping the boy who wants to kill her.
The Isle of Apples is a breathtaking, wonderful place. It’s lush and green, full of white magic and perfectly safe. Well, except for dangerous mythological beasts, enchanted streams, and the fact that there is no sun and no time. And all Bridget has to do to solve an unsolvable, four-thousand-year-old paradox involving the boy who wants to kill her is go there and fulfill a promise she made to the Goddess.
Bridget and her best friend Celena use an otherworldly portal to delve deep into the past for answers of exactly what to do. What is “The Forever Tree” and what do mysterious clay tablets reveal about their quest? How can they find the one person they need to complete the ancient magic when he has disappeared–and is he still in Wales, or has he vanished into ancient Celtic Britain for the same artifacts Bridget seeks?
Bridget learns that sometimes pieces of the puzzle are found in the most unexpected ways–and from the most unexpected people. In an uncharted realm governed by different rules, she witnesses trust, magic and faith overcome adversity as a painful history draws to a close.
