About the Author
Chelsea Bagley Dyreng was born in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and is the daughter of a fireworks salesman and Miss Malibu. She earned her BA at Brigham Young University, worked as a librarian, and then moved to North Carolina, where she and her husband are currently raising five God-fearing, book-loving, adventure-seeking kids.
In her first novel, The Cenote, author Chelsea Dyreng will blow readers away and capture their hearts. From page one readers become attached to the mesmerizing story of a young woman, Sandpiper, who is forced to marry not of her choosing, Lark, and leave her beloved island home. In her new home there is great mystery and legend surrounding the Cenote, the village’s only water source. This heart-wrenching novel set in the ancient Meso-American time period will have you laughing and crying as the richly developed story and beloved characters go through times of joy, trial, and forgiveness. Smooth transitions between the main characters, a man and his wife, brings a new depth to the story and the wonderful relationship between them and their families, enhancing the story this beautiful story. I would highly recommend this touching and inspiring fantasy-romance novel to readers that enjoy deeply moving literature set in the Meso-American time period.
