Best-selling author Laverne Stewart (Angels and the Afterlife; Healing After Homicide, Haunted Heart) offers a gripping new read with Coven of the Soul Sisters. Her novel chronicles the plight of those accused of witchcraft and sentenced to death in 1690s New England. Then, this intriguing novel catapults forward into current times where reincarnated victims and persecutors of the past find themselves again grappling with religious beliefs and zealots inflicting suffering on non-believers – and witchcraft to some remains an unforgivable sin punishable by death.
“Eloquent, well written and researched… Stewart draws you in and holds you captive. As you turn the pages you cannot help but hold your breath knowing what may lie ahead. The fictionalized account of one of the darker periods in American history seems more real than dramatized. A stunning achievement. “
- Tracy Riva, Midwest Book Review
“… Coven of the Soul Sisters … was almost a memory of sorts. This could have been one of my past lives. Laverne weaves a story that brings emotions to the surface and makes you feel that you are one of the characters. You just need to keep reading to see what will happen next.” - Patti LeBlanc, Spiritual intuitive.
“Being of Irish decent and living in Atlantic Canada, I dove into Coven of the Soul Sisters with anticipation of reading a story about my people from afar and the First Nations communities that welcomed us to this beautiful land. Author, Laverne Stewart was clever to keep me wondering the country origin of the Celtic couple that boarded the ship, in the 1600’s, as they fled witch hunts to find peace with relatives in the New England states of America. Curiosity taunted me to the end. We all have our own way to savour a good read. Mine is to never to turn back a page. I believe my first take on my first read is what I need!
- Julia Bannister, Director, Ceili Kids of Canada,

Rodney D. Sieh
Journalist on Trial is the captivating story of Rodney D. Sieh, one of Africa's finest investigative journalists. This story will resonate with virtually every journalist today in an era consumed by daily tweets of a sitting US President and a 24-hour news cycle that has seen real news eclipsed by fake news, and attempts to muzzle the free press. As publisher of Liberia's leading newspaper, FrontPageAfrica, Sieh’s explosive reports have led to arrests, prosecutions and investigations of prominent Liberian government officials. Sentenced to 5,000 years in prison for a trumped-up libel charge in 2013 (an attempt to stop him from exposing government corruption), Sieh’s arrest and jailing triggered an international outcry with journalist rights groups (reporters from The New York Times, Toronto Star, BBC) securing his release. Sieh’s work landed him among Reporters Without Borders' Information Heroes of 2014. As a reporter for the Daily Observer newspaper and the British Broadcasting Corporation, Sieh’s coverage of the deaths and disappearances that followed Yahya Jammeh’s coup d’état on July 22nd, 1994, forced him once again into exile to London, where he fled in 1994. He later took refuge in the United States.
“searing memoir, a must-read for anyone interested in the mass of contradictions in today’s Liberia…”
– Helene Cooper, author, House on Sugar Beach
“A powerful and important book from a powerful and vitally important voice. Here’s to more of this voice shaping the conversation about Liberia and Africa - for decades to come.” - Rachel Pulfer, Executive Director, Journalists for Human Rights, Canada
“… Rodney D. Sieh is the most committed -- nay, single-minded -- journalist I've ever known... from his youth in a blasted, brutalized Liberia straight through the horrors that forged him… For Sieh, journalism is a creed, a faith that offers salvation to a world in urgent need of it, and his story shows the high price of living without compromise.”
– Brooke Gladstone, Editor, WNYC Radio show On The Media
“Civil war, coups and corruption, you name it, Sieh has chronicled it… This is his story: one of courage, principle and afflicting the powerful.”
- Angela Quintal, Africa Program Coordinator, Committee to Protect Journalists
