Another talented Marian is discovered, along with more of the missing tiles, in the latest story in The Madonna Key series. Author Sharron McClellan brings us a unique heroine who adds a new dimension to this spectacular group of novels.

Tru Palmerís hidden talent has brought her many years of pain. When she confided her abilities to her family, instead of accepting her, they pushed her away, sending her to therapists and even had her committed. Luckily, she has found a way to mask her abilities with a legitimate career. How many people would believe that she can find mineral deposits and other valuable resources within the earth, just by feeling them beneath the surface? Being a dowser is not something you hear about every day.

Truís latest project in Africa brings her in contact with Efra, a woman who senses that Tru is another Marian, like she is. Little do they realize that danger is just around the corner.

Tru is a very interesting woman, as most of the Marians have been, but she has been scarred by her gift. Yearning for acceptance she has learned to hide her abilities from prying eyes. It takes a lot of faith for her to discuss or even admit them to anyone because she fears their rejection. But Griffin Sinclair is no ordinary security expert, and he cannot stand idly by and watch Tru put herself in harmís way unless he can understand what is happening. She is going to have to tell him the truth.

Readers can really sense the mounting tension as these novels head toward the finale. The Madonna Key series has been exceptional, and Hidden Sanctuary is no exception.
