The Safe-Keeper's Secret is a journey into a vibrantly crafted fantasy world, overflowing with questions of truth and self-discovery.
Damiana is safe-keeper in the small village of Tambleham. Neighbors and strangers alike come one by one, in secret, to tell her things they dare not share with anyone else, knowing that Damiana will keep then to herself. One late night, a mysterious visitor from the city arrives with an unusual secret for the Safe-Keeper—a newborn baby. Damiana, who is expecting her own child, agrees to take the foundling. She names him Reed and raises him side by side with her daughter, Fiona. And the years pass and the two children grow into teenagers, they must come to terms with who they are—and who they may be.
