Finalist, Indie Excellence Awards
An Amazon Kindle bestseller

Miranda Glivven's husband sets out on a secret assignment for the
government. When he does not return, Miranda goes out in search of him,
starting at his last known location. On reaching that town, she finds
the local authorities uninterested in helping to find him. Worse, some
of the local citizens suspect Miranda of using magic, a treasonous
offense, because of the unusual cat that has followed her on her quest.
Although Miranda has always believed that magic is superstitious
nonsense, she finds the circumstances of her beloved husband's
disappearance growing more and more mysterious.....

Combining elements of fantasy and mystery, the novel details Miranda's
painstaking search, in which she, out of necessity, becomes an
investigator. The fantasy setting reminds the reader of the Victorian
age, where trains are the main method of long-distance transportation.

The story begins with Miranda, the mother of two teenage sons, and the
wife of a lighthouse keeper, wondering why her husband has been gone so
long. From time to time, the Governor (the administrator of the country
she lives in) has sent her husband out on assignments, but this time he
has been gone long past his expected return date.. Even his letters to
her while on assignment, which have in the past been frequent and
regular, have stopped. Miranda uses these letters to trace her husband
in her effort to find out where he is and what has happened to him.
