Eight drops of blood
Author: Charmaine Ann Gaynor
There is a sinister atmosphere that surrounds the farm that has belonged to the Shultz family for eight generations. There is a secret in this house that has caused death, pain and sorrow. Erin Schultz is the youngest surviving descendant of Joseph Shultz and she is about to find out some very alarming facts about the history of her family. Not only will she finally learn about the truth of her mother’s death from her father, she will also learn the reason why she should not, must not, have children.
At a very young age, Erin’s Aunt Catherine took her under her wing and with the help of her gypsy friend Rosemary and her grandmother; a beautiful silver-star pendant with an emerald in the centre was created and placed around her neck. She was three years old at the time. This magic pendant would protect her when she turned five, because this is the age the beast would start visiting her at night. With his terrifying appearance he would torment her and eventually kill her unless the warrior cat finds her in time.
But Catherine knows that more must be done so that Erin can marry the man she loves and have children. Catherine has in her possession the journal of Joseph Schultz where he talks about the curse on his family and how it all started. She is determined to find a way to destroy the curse and save Erin from pain and misery. Catherine goes on a mission with Rosemary to find answers to some questions that have been bothering her for a long time about her family’s history. Will Catherine be able to set Erin free form the curse? Will the family finally find peace?
