Higher Ground Series

Wind Over Troubled Waters, by Francene Stanley & Edith Parzefall, is the first of currently four books in the Higher Ground series, a post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure.

Wind Over Troubled Waters

Corn World. Britland. After the great flood, only memories, debris and derelict buildings speak of a past civilization. Visions of these disturbing times haunt Cerridwen’s dreams. When her dying mother sends Cerridwen to find a mural in Saint Eyes and lead Britland into a better future, the young healer has little choice but to set out on a life-changing quest. Her ability to perceive auras convinces her to accept nature-attuned Trevly’s offer of protection.

Book Two in the Higher Ground Series, Knights in Dark Leather:

After the great flood destroyed civilization, a band of adventurers hunting for treasure challenges Cerridwen’s quest to lead Britland into a better future. She and her friends race against their rivals to Saint Eyes, where they hope to find a mural that leads the way to a powerful moonstone ring influencing the world.
