The Treasure of Cedar Creek
by
Brenda Stanley

Genre:
Historical Thriller

In 1896, the isolated and vast state of Idaho is a haven for the
polygamous splinter group called The Kingdom of Glory, which is
hiding more than their outlawed practice of plural marriage.



At the compound called Cedar Creek, the prophet is hoping to increase
his congregation, even if that means marrying off girls to men
decades older. When Peri, who escaped the compound years earlier,
returns to help rescue Grace, a girl betrothed to the prophet
himself, she ends up also saving her own sister Emma. As the three
women make a frantic and deadly escape from the compound, they take
with them both the newborn heir to the church, and their dead
mother’s cryptic journal to the prophet’s hidden treasure. Along
their journey, the women realize to truly be free they must face what
holds them captive, even if those answers are more horrifying than
they ever imagined.







Excerpt

Emma 1896

This isn’t my story. I’m telling this for the lost souls. I’ve been told that I am safe now, but my heart still pounds when I hear footsteps coming to the door or even the rustle of the aspen leaves in the breeze. I’m not sure I’ll ever feel safe again. He’s still out there and as long as he is, I know that he will be searching for me. I have something that he feels is his and he will kill me to get it back. I know his rage and have felt his violence. He may call himself a man of God, but what was done in the name of the Lord is nothing less than cold-blooded killing. It may have stopped for now, but I hear whispers in the wind and murmurs in the water of the stream, and it is his voice letting me know he’s still there and watching me. So much evil. So much pain. I spend my time watching and waiting because in my heart I know it isn’t over.
