The Emissary Erica's first novel, takes place during World War Two and spans several generations. It is a supernatural thriller/mystery with a spiritual message. Mature themes give the novel an edge as the characters struggle with fear, pain and doubt as they become ever more enchanted with what evil has to offer.
Seemingly minor events in Newcombe have far-reaching consequences decades later causing the breakdown of societies and cultures around the world.
In Part One, the physical description of the village of Newcombe was based on a pretty little community in south western Ontario during the 1940's. Important events such as the Christmas Eve church service, the harvesting of the crops and Devil’s Night in the village were told to me by my parents. The hamlet of Abereiddy, Wales, does indeed exist as does the little cottage tucked into the hillside seen only at a particular time during the day.
