The Blasted Tower
by Catti-Ann Belle

Andee Pearce has just celebrated her fifty-fifth birthday alone in her beachfront California home. Divorced and grieving a shattering loss, she is given a tarot card reading from a stranger on a plane that changes the trajectory of her life forever. When she meets her handsome and intriguing neighbour, she writes him off as a womanizer, but as she manoeuvres clumsily through her solitary life, doors begin to mysteriously unlock and new possibilities arise. When dark secrets threaten Andee’s new romance, she is challenged like never before to open her heart and let go of the past in this powerful and poignant story of loneliness, forgiveness, and the healing power of love.

"Debut author Belle offers a lyrical novel about dealing with heartbreak and finding ways to move on. The author’s style is often poetic, bringing life to descriptions of everyday things. . . . A beautifully written debut about a woman overcoming grief and finding herself."

-Kirkus Reviews

Catti-Ann Belle earned her business diploma from university while working full-time and raising three children. She currently works as a manager and lives in rural southwestern Ontario with her husband of thirty-four years and two dogs, and she has been blessed with three grandchildren. She stays active by cycling, walking, hiking, cross-country skiing, and travelling, and she loves to write. The Blasted Tower is the first in a series; the second book, Cilandra's Law, is about faith, and the third, Journey of Lives, takes on the subject of past lives.
