The Retreat will be released in May 2023

Book Two of The Awakening Series


When you look deep within, you might be surprised by what you discover …

Nueva Vida’s website promises to “unveil your inner-knowing and guide you toward your destiny.” But a week at this Costa Rican holistic resort proves to be life transforming for Marlee, Juliette, Sophia, and Annie. During their stay, they meet Maggie Carr, a young architect from Pittsburgh whose life has recently turned upside down after the unexpected death of her mother. Due to Maggie’s sweet nature, grace, and integrity, the women quickly “adopt” her into their group.

Guided by a shaman, an astrologer, an intuitive healer, and other talented energetic practitioners, these five friends willingly and unwillingly leave their comfort zones to participate in spiritual healings. However, none expect the startling revelations that emerge. Yet, as Marlee, Maggie, Sophia, Annie, and Juliette learn to trust, let go, and believe in what seems unimaginable, each discovers a vital missing piece to her individual life puzzle.


Told through the point of view of both Marlee and Maggie, The Retreat is the second of three books in The Awakening Series. This story serves as the necessary bridge for Marlee and her friends … to become The Healers.
