Award-winning Children’s Author, Donna McDine - Launches First Book through Guardian Angel Publishing

Tappan, New York – Donna M. McDine debuts her first children’s book, The Golden Pathway, August 2010, published by Guardian Angel Publishing. The book release is perfect timing in preparation of back to school as it ties into the grade school curriculum.

As one young boy struggles to come to terms with his father’s beliefs and actions towards slaves, he pulls from deep within his soul, courage and determination he never knew existed. Will David’s attempts to save Jenkins come to fruition or does David get caught red handed in defying his Pa?
“David crept into the barn. His first attempts to help Jenkins hadn’t gone well. Jenkins cringed when he saw David. Over time, David gained Jenkins’ trust with promises that he was not there to harm him, but to help. Tonight the wounds from the whip were worse than ever. The welts looked as if caterpillars were stuck under the skin.”

Journey along as McDine puts forth her unique mesmerizing voice where the depths of emotions from the main character spill forth from the pages and has you spell bound from the onset.

Visit Guardian Angel Publishing for ordering information - August 2010.
