Rose’s Ring:  Inheritors of Silence and Secrets
Our ancestor’s stories have gifts for us if we know where to look for them.  A Chicago TV reporter, who inherits a family ring with only bits of information, is led on a quest across the ocean and back in time.  The story she discovers leads her to the site of the damage and, ultimately, to her own healing.
A historical thriller that traverses time, Rose’s Ring: Inheritors of Silence and Secrets interweaves the author’s own family story with those of a tribe of native Oneida people and a runaway slave whose decision to stop running sets in motion tragic events that culminate in one of the worst shipwrecks in Lake Michigan history, the sinking of The Lady Elgin.
