Sheila Miller's newborn baby is gone. His death certificate is stamped SIDS, but Sheila knows her Timmy did not die in his crib from natural causes - he was taken. But no one believes Sheila's tale of standing helpless while a mysterious veiled woman hovered over the crib. Karl, Sheila's rigid, insensitive husband, openly scoffs at the supernatural and is convinced Sheila is emotionally ill. Her Aunt Iris - a sensual, counter-culture writer and a continuum of the sixties who loves her niece dearly - can't accept the story even though she wishes with all her heart she could. At least Iris is a positive, supportive force in Sheila's life and gives her a needed refuge in her mountain cabin. But as a series of bizarre incidents destroy innocent people linked to Sheila, those closest to her - including Chad Olsen, a student of Eastern philosophy to whom Sheila is inexplicably drawn - listen when a Chinese legend historian reveals a terrifying story involving a white jade amulet and a ferocious fox-maiden, an entity determined to destroy Sheila.Lehr, Norma is the author of 'Dark Maiden ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780809557806 and ISBN 0809557800.
