In the year 1899, in Whitehaven, Cumbria, UK, Lady Constance Witherspoon, only 14 years of age, gives birth to twin girls during a tumultuous storm. Lady Elisa (Beth) is born with a diagnosis of demonic possession, while her twin, Lady Sarah, is crushed and killed when the ceiling collapses in the storm.
In the year 2000, Sally Witherspane returns home to Whitehaven and is haunted by relentless nightmares about demons and a baby crushed at birth. To discover the meaning of these dreams, she seeks the help of the local psychic, who instructs Sally to attend a past life meeting. It is there that Sally meets Beth Witherspoon.
Persuaded by a ghostly blue apparition, Sally documents a family history filled with deception, abuse and an ancient evil, and she must summon strength and faith to become the woman she is destined to be, one of the last descendants of the White Heaven Women.
About Jessie B. Tyson:
Jessie B Tyson was born at Scalegill Place near Moor Row, a tiny village between the coast and the mountains in N.W. Cumbria England. In what year? She’s a senior and will not divulge that, ladies prerogative but she will be collecting a pension in a few years (grin.)
She was educated in her natal area and moved to Canada in the year 2000. Jessie wrote children’s and fantasy stories as a teenager. When she matured she moved on to writing adult stories. She has a great imagination and enjoys turning her vision-like dreams into enjoyable tales.
Jessie considers herself as a Spiritual Christian, who believes in the Power of God but that doesn’t stop her writing paranormal fiction with ghosts and demons! 😀 Jessie has a wonderful sense of humour, and loves to laugh and tease her friends.
She has a generous spirit and will help anyone in need. She has an affinity with animals, especially dogs, cats, horses and dolphins. Jessie abhors all forms of cruelty to any living breathing creature.
“Jessie Tyson evokes the sights, smells, accents and atmosphere of early 20th century northern England to give us a tale of re-incarnation that marches past even our present times; a novel of hope and of the multiple chances that re-incarnation provides the soul in search of enlightenment.” —Shane Joseph, author of The Ulysses Man
“A terrifying tale of reincarnation, demons and protective blue ghosts. Debut author Jessie B. Tyson paints a literary landscape of bygone days so skillfully the main characters leap off the pages into our hearts.” —Betty Dravis, best-selling co-author of Six-Pack of Blood
“Jessie has written a fast paced book with vivid characters. The sense of place is thoroughly described and puts the reader firmly in the scene—I could imagine everything clearly. Her main character is likeable and you will find yourself wanting to know what happens next. A great book to get lost in on a rainy day.” —Dionne Lister, author of Shadows of the Realm
“Nobody knows how to entwine a novel together better than Jessie B. Tyson, as she draws us into a life with Beth, a young lady who seems to have the most complicated life and survival. Beth’s path is paved with horror, suspense, paranormal, life, death, love and hate all woven together with such powerfulness, so real, so fragile, yet gripping enough to keep you on the edge to know more. I fell in love with Beth and her sharp mind, fragile body, and her warm heart, and you will too.” —Peggy Grigowski, author of A Glimpse of What If
