Constance, Yukon lies approximately one hundred and fifty miles west of Whitehorse and is a remote predominantly native community accessible only by air. Jackson Jacobs spent most of his life here. It was relatively peaceful until a stranger arrives and shakes up the whole town, bringing new Changes In Constance. In this riveting fictional novel by Helga Brendel, readers can witness mysterious events unfold in a place where nothing is what it seems.

As the senior Royal Canadian Mountain Police (R.C.M.P.) officer, Constable Jackson Jacobs is determined to do whatever it takes to protect his home—even from a ‘crazy white woman’. When the arrival of newcomer Emily Linden sparks the increasingly violent activities of a mysterious presence in the valley, Jackson wants to hold her responsible for them. Emily has been invited to help reorganize the town’s finances though he is against it. Something, however, about Emily, told Jackson that this woman was no stranger to this valley. She had lived in this valley before; in fact, she had always been his greatest ally…

Interwoven with mystery, suspense, folklore, danger and excitement, Changes In Constance is engrossing from beginning to end. Secrets will be revealed while betrayal rears its ugly head and the valley wreaks havoc. Only Jackson holds the key to bringing peace back in Constance. But can he do it in time? Readers will find themselves glued to the pages as they unravel the mystery of Jackson and Emily’s past and how it will affect the present.
