“… violent racism … robed Klansmen … compassionate strangers. This inspirational tale thrills with a tight plot, lyrical scene descriptions, and complex characters. Pamela Cable leaves readers aching for more.” ~ Julie Cantrell, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of the Christy Award winning novel, Into the Free
On a November day in 1946, Neeley McPherson turned five … and accidentally killed her parents. Thrown into the care of her scheming and alcoholic grandfather, she survives by her quick wit, and the watchful eye of an elderly black man, Gideon. In 1959, as equal rights heats up the South, authorities accuse Gideon of stealing a watch and using a Whites Only restroom. Neeley, now thirteen, determines to break him out of jail.
The infamous Catfish Cole, Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon of the Carolinas, pursues Neeley and Gideon in their courageous escape to the frozen Blue Ridge Mountains to a wolf sanctuary, where Neeley crosses the bridge between the real and the supernatural.
Set in a volatile time in America, The Sanctum bestows sanctuary and invokes the power of second chances, but leads Neeley to tragedy again. Will she also realize the desire of her heart?
