(From the publisher):
Marimi, a healer in her tribe, the Topaa, is unprepared for what fate holds in store for her. The Topaa live in a beautiful coastal settlement, a place that will one day be called California. But because of jealousy, Marimi is placed under a curse and from there her family's legacy unfolds. From pre-historic California to the days of Spanish explorers to the time of California colonialism to the swashbuckling cowboy days of early Los Angeles right up to the present day, SACRED GROUND tells the story of the female descendents of Marimi. It tells of their loves, their betrayals, their losses, their families, and the ruthless ambition that would forge a new country.
