THE DROWNING BRIDE A Legend of Havenwood Falls Novella ANG'DORA PRODUCTIONS | DECEMBER 6, 2019 Prequel to Of Salt and Stars
Before there was a curse, there was a wish
For generations, Noelani has lived in the forest of Havenwood Falls, bestowing blessings and good fortune on all who drink from the waters of her well. Over the years, she has been visited by hundreds of blushing brides and aging widows who crave her magic, but never has she met a heart as pure as that of Stella Malley—or as dark as that of her fiancé, Peter Heilen. When the couple arrives in Havenwood Falls in the autumn of 1993, the warm waters of Noelani’s well begin to run cold, and a bitter chill sets into the naiad’s heart as the forest darkens around her.
When Stella and Peter receive a postcard from the picturesque town of Havenwood Falls with an invite for Stella to sing at the Haven Saloon, the couple decides to skip the big wedding and elope. The more Stella falls in love with the town, the stranger Peter begins to act. After hearing stories of the magical, love-imbued waters of Noelani’s well, Stella believes it may be the only way to save her love from his dark path and return Peter’s heart to her. Little does she know that the wish she casts at the water’s edge may doom them all.
