Two thousand years ago, there was a great bay and a peaceful land filled with sage, citrus trees, and pine. And there was a tribe called the Topaa. Marimi, a healer in her tribe, is unprepared for what fate holds in store for her. Without her knowledge, her actions place her under the watchful, suspicious gaze of a rival...and Marimi's family is placed under a curse that impacts how their legacy unfolds. From prehistoric California to the days of Spanish explorers, from the time of California colonialism to the swashbuckling cowboy days of early Los Angeles and right up to the present day, Scared Ground tells the story of the female descendants of Marimi. It tells of their loves, their betrayals, their loses, their families, and their ruthless ambitions that would forge a new country.

After an earthquake damages a rich area of California, a sacred cave containing human remains is found dating back at least 1500 years. As archaeologist Erica Tyler races to discover the identity and way of life of the Native American tribe whose artifacts are left there, Jared Black, the member of a Native American Commission, seeks their living descendents. Gabrielle de Cuir tells the tale of each discovery and the mythical or historical story behind why each piece was left in the cave. De Cuir's soft voice clearly enunciates the Indian and Spanish words, disrupting the flow of the engaging narrative. What Tyler and Black discover about the Native American tribe adds a nice twist to this romantic tale of past and present.
