In My Father's House
Claire DuMond can't believe her father would simply lapse into a coma for no apparent reason. Even his doctors are mystified. And she's not the type to sit around and wring her hands. So Claire sets out to learn the cause, and soon lands on the Caribbean island of Martinique. There she finds romance. Meets a real live witch doctor. And steps smack into the middle of a world of drug smuggling where nosing around is not a good idea. But that's only half of it. Claire also travels deep into the dimension we call the mind, and back in time, in her effort to discover the root of the father's illness. In the words of book reviewer Richard Fuller, "Occasionally, perhaps even rarely, a novel is written that brings together heart-racing action with heart-rending insight. Such is In My Father's House." This thriller is a great read that won the WRITER'S DIGEST BOOK AWARD and the IPPY from INDEPENDENT PRESS. It is being made into a movie by Vistamar Films.
