Annie is a beautiful sprite who talks to the animals and ethereal spirits and faeries of the forest in mid-1600s Colonial America. She is blessed with the gift of healing from the Spiritual Universe, but Annie is also dwarfed, mentally slow, and lacking in social and emotional development. She is the victim of birth defects in a time when such babies were put to death or banished, along with their mothers.

Ridicule, bullying, and perceptions haven’t changed much from the 17th Century to the 21st. We still see the inequality of women’s rights and “special” people of all ages being ignored, bullied, or labelled. Annie came to me in a past-life regression while I was studying to become an Advanced Certified Psychological Hypnotherapist, ACPH, to help myself deal with the pain, immobility, and weight gain of an immune-deficieny disease treated with steroids.

Was I Annie in another life? Or did a higher being select me to tell this story with its timeless message? I’ll let you decide based on your personal beliefs. Annie is written as historical fiction, based on extensive factual research.

“Annie’s Story” begs to be told. She is an unusual child growing up in the British North American Colonies who is “Blessed With A Gift.”

Need ideas on cover for “Annie’s Story: Blessed With A Gift”

A painting by my mother, an incredible artist (oil painting 18x24-inch on canvas). The forest is integral to Annie, who is based on a past-life regression. In essence, I am Annie!

I think I have eliminated this design, a photograph, because it may look like a children's book, which this historical novel definitely is not. Very spiritual and accurate to the timeframe. A very difficult time in Colonial America.

I hope to get some comments on both covers to help me decide which is the right look.
