Imagine the courage it would take to time-travel to find your sister, only to find her house burned, and she has fled the arsonists. With her strong will, Heather takes on the challenge. On the search for her sister, she ends up in 1849 rowdy San Francisco where she gets a job playing piano in a saloon where she befriends the dance hall girls. Disgusted with the conditions under which they work, she searches for a way to extract them from their demeaning jobs, which infuriates the saloon owner. A Gypsy palm reader warns Heather about an unexpected journey and impending danger for her and her new sweetheart.
About the Author
Fascinated by the wild west, Carolyn Radmanovich earned a history degree from San Jose State University. After a near-drowning incident on the Russian River, she felt compelled to write her first book, The Shape-Shifter’s Wife, about an anthropologist, Angelica, who time travels to the California gold rush of 1848 and meets a handsome Frenchman. This book won the 2018 Independent Book Awards for Visionary Fiction. The sequel, The Gypsy’s Warning, focuses on the sister, Heather, who time travels to find Angelica. Carolyn’s short stories, “Tex’s Dream” and “Frenchie – A Love Story,” were included in the NCPA anthologies, Birds of a Feather and More Birds of a Feather.
