COVER REVEAL│The Empress Chronicles by Suzy Vitello

In this dazzling novel from the
author of THE MOMENT BEFORE, one courageous girl seeks keys to the past to
unlock the future…

city girl Liz is banished to a rural goat farm on the outskirts of Portland,
the 15-year-old feels her life spiraling out of control.  She can’t
connect to her father or his young girlfriend, and past trauma adds to her
sense of upheaval.  The only person who seems to keep her sane is a
troubled boy who is fighting his own demons.  But all of this changes in
one historical instant.
fifty years earlier, Elisabeth of Bavaria has troubles of her own.  Her
childhood is coming to a crashing end, and her destiny is written in the form
of a soothsaying locket that has the ability to predict true love.  But
evil is afoot in the form of a wicked enchantress who connives to wield the
power of the locket for her own destructive ends.
Liz finds a timeworn diary, and within it a locket, she discovers the secrets
and desires of the young Bavarian princess who will one day grow up to be the
legendary Empress of Austria. It is in the pages of the diary that these
two heroines will meet, and it is through their interwoven story that Liz will
discover she has the power to rewrite history—including her own…
