Christmas in Cahokia: Song of the Owl (The Sacred Messenger Series Book 2)

by Karen Hulene Bartell

The earth has music for those who listen . . .

Veterinarian and owl-lover Ceci Lupo is an oddityâ??she sees music as colorful dancing notes. Be it sacred music, rap, or jazz, to her, it’s healingâ??it’s the voice of God.

After uncovering a mysterious urn of ashes, then discovering she was adopted, Ceci sets off on a journey to investigate her ancestry. Her search leads her from a St. Louis blues nightclub to the Cathedral Basilica for Gregorian Chant to an archeological dig at the sacred pyramid at Cahokia. As the present overlaps with the past, she learns of an earthbound spirit linked to the ancient Cahokian culture.

Along her quest, an undiscovered murder triggers a re-thinking of her life. How much of her past can be trusted? And who is she, really? As Ceci unearths her roots, she begins the process of realizing the world is a more extraordinary place than she ever imagined.

Set in Cahokia, Illinois, home to North America’s largest pyramid, Christmas in Cahokia: Song of the Owl celebrates music and the mystical, as it embraces the truth of who we are.
