Can a spirit from the past come back to help us solve a problem in the present?
“I’ve been blessed in these past few weeks with young adult books that have taken me to places I have absolutely not wanted to come back from. This book will be one that will sit on my shelf for a very long time, and I will pass along to my daughter, her daughter, etc. I loved this book.” —Amy Lignor, Bookpleasures
"Unlike many stories in this genre, Richardson presents conflicts and issues that are subtly shaded with no clear good vs. bad, right vs. wrong. This real-world treatment of complex social and environmental issues places Indian Summer a notch above similar stories. Richardson create(s) complex, yet realistic relationships. Indian Summer is a thoughtfully written story requiring the reader to consider a number of value judgments along the way. For the YA reader . . . an entertaining and informative read. Thoughtfully written adventure with a hint of magic." - Thomas Temple, Amazon Reviewer
"Twilight got your tween reading, which is great. But let's be honest here, it isn't the best form of literature available out there. And while your tween might not be ready (or willing) to give Shakespeare a try at this point in her life, parents can continue feeding this new-found interest for reading by picking up more books that are not only geared at tweens, but are well written, have an intriguing plot and whose main character is relatable to them. Tracy Richardson's Indian Summer is exactly that. If you're the kind of parent who likes to read what your tween reads, rest assured: Indian Summer is a book you will also like reading." - Blogcritics.org

Excerpt from THE FIELD – Eric connects with the Universal Energy Field, but can he believe it?
Eric’s class is on a field trip to the coal gasification plant in this scene. Finally, we’re back outside at the side of the plant where the trucks tip their loads of coal into the processing area. Our chirpy guide is saying, “There’s a picnic area along the shore of the Eagle River where you […]
Thoughts are Things and the Akashic Record ~ Excerpt from THE FIELD
