Gloria Amendola's second novel, The Tower and the Land: Awakening to the Light.
In Book Two of Gloria Amendola's Tower series, Marta sets out for France – to find the legendary manuscript she was told is still buried somewhere in the countryside of Rennes le Chateau. But the landscape temple is vast and much is to be learned before entering this place of extraordinary power.
No sooner than Marta’s feet touch French soil, the spirit of Joan of Arc appears. The message she receives is puzzling yet she is determined to make sense of it.
Marta wants to understand the power of the magic red ruby, but before she can, she travels to the place of the Gypsies and meets the mysterious Anselme Mathieu, a man of many secrets. They are immediately drawn together – as if they have known – and loved – each other somewhere in time!
And the men who followed her in Virginia Beach are once again on her trail. How did they find her? What are they trying to show her? And should Anselme be trusted?
Will Marta crack the code or will she be stopped from finding the lost book of Jesus? Is it really a book or something unexpected? And how do the thermal waters of Rennes les Bains lead her to Chartres Cathedral? Could it involve the enduring mystery of the Church of St. Sulpice and the message that has been guarded by secret societies throughout time?
