“In The Secret Chamber of Gwendoline Riston, author Janet Graber weaves a tale of old that hauntingly echoes our own experience with the Covid-19 pandemic. Young Gwendoline Riston is fearful of the Great Plague and what it will do to her village and her loved ones. To escape the spreading fever Gwendoline hides away in a secret chamber, careful to avoid the villagers ignoring her father’s advice to close off the hamlet. She fights to understand the disease and to do what she can to help her neighbors at the risk of her own safety. Gwendoline’s bravery, intuition, and primitive knowledge of science, shine through in this gripping story as she struggles to survive amidst deadly disease. This story immerses the reader in the healing ways of old, yet feels oddly like today. ” (Susan Latta and Dr. Kristen Latta)
