Ora Gad is the heroine of this historical fiction trilogy. Her saga spans more than a century and the continents of Africa and Europe before finally culminating in America in our days -- more specifically in New York City in Central Park.

ORA GAD is an epic tale filled with magical powers, seductive charm, and the clash between good and evil. It’s an account of love, betrayal, murders, hope, despair, religious zeal, witches, pirates, trolls, and non-stop action.

Ora Gad’s world is one of alluring magic where vigilance is her ally at every turn, for what looks good or bad may not necessarily be what it appears to be. Distinction between good and evil isn’t as evident as between black and white. There’s a gray area. Things are foggy.

How will Ora Gad, the heroine, proceed?

Ora Gad is a trilogy: The Old Country—Book One; High Seas and Middle Passage—Book Two; and New York Central Park—Book Three.
