Continue The Orphan Dreamer Saga, a transcontinental sweeping fantastical story spiced with thrills and comedy where ANNE OF GREEN GABLES meets THE DA VINCI CODE in a play of fate that will change the destiny of an orphan and the future of humanity in ORPHAN TREE and the VANISHING SKELETON KEY, episode four within a contemporary epic that defies time and takes readers from the 575 B.C. into a future of what-ifs.

What if Indiana Jones were a naive girl born into a close-knit African-American family in the South—a girl destined to solve her own DA VINCI CODE but who would rather simply overcome the provincialism of her community and find her own ANNE-OF-GREEN-GABLES-style bosom friend?

The Orphan Dreamer Saga—a seven-novel serial interspersed with seven novellas that intertwines three tales across time and space. This epic story weaves an intricate tapestry of Divine guidance, faith, isolation, hope, and loss as it follows two children from their beginnings to their ends.
