Reincarnation, A Catholic & A Witch Trilogy 1
by B. Austin
Salia is a half-breed, living on the fringes of society with only coyotes as friends until she meets Marcelina, a Catholic whose knees are callused by prayer, a girl unafraid to befriend a witch. As Salia and Marcelina grow to womanhood, they will discover that friendship can be as strong as faith.
There is a portrait in the house at the bottom of Witch Hill. Salia looks out of the picture with haunted eyes. She is pale because her mother pinches her arm. But it is Salia’s Native American grandmother who dominates the picture. She is 145 years old but appears to be a teenager, holding out in her hand an ordinary-looking rock, a piedra imán, a rare shape-shifting stone, allowing her to bathe like in the fountain of youth, to be immortal while others around her age.
The 1st book of a trilogy about the unlikely devotion of a devout Catholic and a reluctant 3rd-generation witch.
