Please Welcome Author Tracy Krauss

Tracy Krauss has a new release at Astraea Press, but she's not new to writing! She's a playwright, with several stage plays in print, and three books published through Strategic Book Publishing. She lives in British Columbia, Canada with her husband, a pastor, and their children.
Tracy is here today to tell us about her new book, Wind Over Marshdale. Here's the blurb:
Marshdale. Just a small farming community where nothing special happens. A perfect place to start over…or get lost. There is definitely more to this prairie town than meets the eye. Once the meeting place of aboriginal tribes for miles around, some say the land itself was cursed because of the people’s sin. But its history goes farther back than even indigenous oral history can trace and there is still a direct descendant who has been handed the truth, like it or not. Exactly what ties does the land have to the medicine of the ancients? Is it cursed, or is it all superstition?            
Wind Over Marshdale is the story of the struggles within a small prairie town when hidden evil and ancient medicine resurface. Caught in the crossfire, new teacher Rachel Bosworth finds herself in love with two men at once. First, there is Thomas Lone Wolf, a Cree man whose blood lines run back to the days of ancient medicine but who has chosen to live as a Christian and faces prejudice from every side as he tries to expose the truth. Then there is Con McKinley, local farmer who has to face some demons of his own. Add to the mix a wayward minister seeking anonymity in the obscurity of the town; eccentric twin sisters – one heavily involved in the occult and the other a fundamentalist zealot; and a host of other ‘characters’ whose lives weave together unexpectedly for the final climax. This suspenseful story is one of human frailty - prejudice, cowardice, jealousy, and greed – magnified by powerful spiritual forces that have remained hidden for centuries, only to be broken in triumph by grace.

  5. well, as usual, I'm a full weekend LATE to arrive.

    But since Patty admits, in the banner, that she's also a procrastinator, I guess I'm in good company.
