Susan F. Craft’s celebrating
a new Xanthakos family book release on September 14. In The Chamomile, Lilyan and Nicholas met in Revolutionary War Charles
Town. They searched for their stolen infant daughter in Laurel, which had Lilyan being tried for the murder of a British
officer. Now, in Cassia, they have
become vintners on a sea voyage, when they encounter a dying pregnant slave who
requests that they care for her child. As a consequence, they find themselves
marooned on an island along North Carolina's Outer Banks and become victims of
pirates led by the murderous Captain Galeo (The Shark).
