NAME WITH BUTTERFLIES_edited.jpg

Born of the Heart
A gothic novel of Suspense
by Angela Townsend

Piety Barlow lives in an oppressive village ruled by her father, Reverend Barlow. A venerated man, he appears next to sainthood for his stirring sermons delivered to his devoted flock. But looks can be deceiving—after all, even the devil can quote scripture. 

 

Piety’s ill-fated life seems destined for one of utter servitude, destined that is, until mysterious Mayans from deep within the folds of the Yucatan arrive, magnetic strangers with a desperate message regarding Piety’s imperial heritage—a secret her devout father would break all commandments to conceal. 

 

Alone and terrified amidst a quagmire of lies and uncertainty, Piety seeks comfort in a forbidden affair. But fighting for love in an unaccepting decade isn’t the only battle in store for Piety. She must endure a death-defying journey of self-discovery from her roots of the former emperor of France to the deepest, darkest jungles of a lost empire.

Print, eBook, and Audiobook versions available.
