Yareah magazine knows very well the author Trish MacGregor. We has already published a review of her novel “Ghost Key” signed by Jenean Gilstrap (our gypsy girl). Today, Jenean has sent us the review of ESPERANZA, the predecessor to “Ghost Key”. Enjoy it, the novel is fantastic and Jenean writes with her usual fine pen.
ESPERANZA by Trish MacGregor, reviewed by Jenean Gilstrap
ESPERANZA is the extraordinary tale of two strangers who meet under extraordinary circumstances in an extraordinary setting [a place in the Andes called ESPERANZA which means “hope”] and whose paths lead them on an even greater extraordinary journey – a journey filled with mysticism and adventure and love – love beyond mere physical love – a love that “transcends time and death” and an adventure into the unknown, the unlived and into a life beyond death, where the two of them hold the key to the time-old mystical battle fought among the living and the good and the bad spirit worlds –
In ESPERANZA you will meet and come to know the beautiful native people whose magnificent ancient Incan heritage is alive and well today!
In ESPERANZA you will walk the “…shadowed, cobbled streets of…this…old town…where your…eyes must adjust to the antiquity, the brilliant colors, the poverty…where your senses…don’t know which cue to follow – the scents or the colors, the touch of the past, the music that energizes the air…or…the taste of the foods…”
In ESPERANZA you will come to know in a familiar way the intriguing characters involved in this magnificent story – them and their families – you will come to think of them outside the covers of this book – you will think of them as you go about your daily routine – you will think of them!
In ESPERANZA you will not only follow Tess and Ian and Dominica and Ben on their own journeys, you will find yourself making your own personal quest into this world, the other world, and into yourSELF!
Above and beyond all, ESPERANZA is a mesmerizing tale of mystery, mysticism, adventure and love – and HOPE – in a setting you will long remember and a tale which will leave you not just wanting more, but needing more – of the work of its author, TRISH MACGREGOR! The sequel to ESPERANZA, titled GHOST KEY, has just been released and is also available at Amazon. Be sure and read my review [August 23, 2012] in YAREAH. Both books are now available at Amazon and bookstores!
As an aside, if you are wondering why the name MacGregor sounds a bit familiar, it could be because Trish and her author husband, ROB MACGREGOR, are both award winning authors whose non-fiction books include subjects of synchronicity, dreams, astrology, yoga and animal symbolism and paranormal phenomena such as UFO’s, with both having appeared on television and radio shows. Their two most recent co-authored works of non-fiction are The 7 Secrets of Synchronicity and Synchronicity and the Other Side.
The fictional work of both authors is replete with subjects of time travel, micro-chipping of animals and people, vanishings, parallel existences, governmental involvement and cover-ups, and more. Rob MacGregor has appeared on several major television network channels and also wrote Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and six other of the Indiana Jones original novels. His most recent fictional pieces are Time Catcher and Double Heart. Check them both out at Amazon and be sure to visit their intriguing website at http://www.synchrosecrets.com/synchrosecrets.

About Trish MacGregor:The author Trish MacGregor was born and raised in Caracas, where her father worked for Standard Oil. In her opinion “Caracas was an idyllic place to grow up. At 3,000 feet above sea level, located in a valley, there are just two seasons – the rainy season and the dry season, and the weather is perpetually spring. Until around 1963, thousands of Americans lived in Caracas. They weren’t really expatriates – most of them worked for American companies – but they lived like expats.”
There, she attended both local and American schools and grew up bilingual and experiencing the political problems of Venezuela. In 1963, the dictator, Perez Jimenez, was overthrown and fled the country. The situation became so politically unstable that Americans began leaving Venezuela in droves. Her family went to Florida, although her love for South America continues (also for Ecuador).
Married with the novelist Rob MacGregor, Trish has been a successful novelist for years.
