Here’s Susan Gabriel’s latest novel!

Gullah Secrets: Sequel to Temple Secrets

A family legacy in danger. A stranger in their midst. Do they have the strength to survive the gathering storm of secrets?

For the Temple women, the winds of change are blowing. And if they’re not careful, it could sweep them all away!

After rising from Temple servant to tea shop owner, Violet finally feels in charge of her destiny. While learning Gullah folk magic from her aging grandmother, she worries much of her cultural heritage will be lost to the grave. Is there enough time for Old Sally to pass down all her special wisdom?

Bride-to-be Queenie has never felt younger at heart. Engaged to the man of her dreams, the feisty sixty-year-old won’t let anything ruin her big day, not even ancestral ghosts or a mysterious wedding crasher.

Rose’ southern roots run deep. Even after three decades away, she can still feel the shadow of her deceased high-society mother watching her every move. Can she shake her ghost and find a place among her family?
