While exploring the woods of Vermont with her cousin and her best friend, twelve-year-old Alexandra Stepp experiences a bewildering ability to see light emanating from within all that surrounds her — from within the forest animals, the flowers, grasses and trees, even from within the rocks and boulders. It is a wonderful gift but a challenge to control and impossible to understand.
This is the summer of the Quiet Light, and Alexandra will turn to this gift to save her friends and elude capture by the ancient spirit she has awakened. She will also meet White Feather Woman, a medicine woman, who knows of both the danger and the wonder that this gift-sight could bring.
The first in a four book series, The Summer of Quiet Light recounts the early days of Alexandra Stepp’s journey from little girl to young woman.
