This spellbinding novel shares the story of a family's connection to the mystical lore of their village

Since Onyx’s Time, a new book by Margaret Muguercia, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

This is the spellbinding story of a family’s connection to the mystical lore of their village’s people. The story’s adventures are seen through the eyes of two young brothers as they strive to carry out their deceased father’s legacy, while leaving their mother behind to await their return.

We learn of their mother’s losses in life as she first prays for her family’s safe return and then agonizes over her life alone, dreaming only of being reconnected with her loved ones.

Along the way, the author provides some very remarkable symbolism in her telling of this story, which provides food for thought. This imagery supplies fodder, which when consumed by the reader, creates a means of understanding how legends are born and passed down from generation to generation.

Mrs. Muguercia uses this creative tool to explore and express the issues that are important to her…the essence of adventure, the strength of love and family, as well as life’s paradoxes.
