New book chronicles Eddie’s struggle against Wiccans trying to control his mind

Filled with a diverse cast of characters, Peter Robinson’s new book explores the truth behind the mystical image of Wicca. Featuring people drawn to the power emanating from this spiritual system, “Wicca is Rising at the Jersey Shore” (published by Xlibris) gives a glimpse into their hidden world and reveals a teenager’s unforgettable journey.

Eddie, a teenage boy, struggles to fight off the attempt of college girls inclined toward the Wiccan creed to control his mind and enslave his body. Mrs. Prendergast is a wealthy benefactor that leads the group. There is also Paul, a policeman, who has succumbed to his wife’s practices. Throughout the story, Eddie is forced to wrestle with naturally opposing forces of his prurient needs as a male and beliefs instilled in him by his religious and ethical upbringing.

“It is not meant to preach a moral philosophy but merely describe the maturing of a teenager into a young man,” Robinson says. “Although Wicca is a somewhat dark creed, Eddie’s problems were universal for boys at his age at the time and probably still are.”

A compelling read, “Wicca is Rising at the Jersey Shore” will not only entertain readers but also impart to the them an important lesson about morality and standing firm to their principles and beliefs.
