Did you know that witches in New Mexico flash into fireballs and soar across the sky like shooting stars?
Two young women, a witch and a Catholic, clash with the Penitentes, a fanatical, Catholic secret society who enforce their own punishment for sin.
Salia, a third-generation witch and half-breed living on the fringes of society with a cruel mother and selfish grandmother, befriends Marcelina, a doubting Catholic haunted by a centuries-old witch, La Llorona, who rises from the muddy Rio Grande. While Marcelina is torn between Catholicism and witchcraft allure, Salia has no desire to join the Sisterhood of the Black Rose, the covens created by La Llorona. She would rather be an opera singer, though she cannot sing. But, if she can steal her grandmother's shape-shifting stone, she can become a great singer, if she can only defeat her powerful mother and escape her family's curse, which prevents her from leaving the coal-mining town of Madrid.
When Salia catches the eye of the arrogant Samuel, who owns all of Madrid, the villagers gossip that she has bewitched him. The Penitentes conspire to return the Spanish Inquisition to New Mexico and witch-hunts.
REINCARNATION is brewed with the little known world of Southwestern witchcraft. It is a touching, magical tale about friendship, love, betrayal, and toxic family ties set during the Roaring 20's and Great Depression, the first of a four-book series.
