There, the fragrance from a mysterious pouch of herbs takes Christina back to the time of Pacal, the famous ruler of a Maya territory known today as Palenque. Never before have the people of this civilization been portrayed with such compelling insight, affording a fascinating look into the life and times of one of the great leaders of this fabled civilization.

For the reader who likes to have it all in a novel -- fiction, history, adventure, human drama, intrigue and true archaeological revelations mixed in with a great narrative --Place of Mirrors won't disappoint you. Christina Rossi leaves her troubled life behind to travel through Mexico to the lost Mayan civilization in hopes of uncovering clues about her own past life. The text contains the latest actual breakthroughs on deciphering Mayan glyphs-including warnings about an impending change when the Great Cycle of Time ends in the year 2012. The glyphs also show a parallel between the Mayan civilization's collapse and similar patterns into which our own world is falling.From the Author:
Place of Mirrors is based on my own experiences and extensive research of the ancient Maya civilization and the Maya people living in the Yucatan today. There is a wealth of academic information available about their ancient civilization, but I wanted to give readers something emotional so that they would recognize themselves in these people - to put some flesh and heart and soul onto those bones archaeologists have been digging up. Perhaps, if we can see beyond the cultural differences, to identify with people as human beings with dreams and fears just like our own, then we will no longer tolerate the persecution of any group. Sadly, time is running out for the Maya people, their extermination is happening with hardly a cry of protest, and the news media doesn't even think this tragedy is worth notice.
