My Soul to Keep, Book One of The Fellowship Dystopia Trilogy

Miranda lived a charmed life in 1961 Fellowship America…

until she broke the rules.

Already besieged by the Great Depression, the assassination of President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt was the last straw. America closed her eyes and ears to all but their own Fellowship Prophet. The Prophet and his Council led America out of the Depression and changed the country with their rules and restrictions. Restrictions that even privileged Miranda Clark couldn’t bear.

One spring day in 1961, Miranda breaks the rules of her charmed life. She discovers her world is far darker, more duplicitous, and much more deadly that she’d ever imagined. 

She uncovers soul-shattering secrets. Family secrets. Secrets that could destroy the Fellowship—and her. Hunted by the Fellowship’s unstoppable Angels of Death, she must fight for her country, her friends, her life.

This gripping story examines an America that could have been. And the insular and righteous repression that one day may yet be…
