Author Donna Daye Kitchton of Bonita Springs made her mark in the publishing world in 2015 with “The Fountain Revived”. The book chronicles the story of Abigail Stone and tells a mysterious tale that brings readers into a maze of gripping suspense and intrigue.
Abigail just graduated from college when she and her dog, Willow, are moving to St. Augustine, Florida, where she will be employed at the Blue Water Clinic. She has rented a small home from a feisty 68-year old lady who lives next door.
Willow started to investigate her new home and found a letter in the mortar of the fireplace that was over 100 years old. Engaging her landlord in the reading of the letter, Abigail entered into a maze of danger, risk and intrigue that began when Henry Flagler and his second wife, Ida, were the talk of the town.
Inspired by her interest in the history of St. Augustine, which she had first visited when she was five, Kitchton fuses mystery, suspense and history to give readers a thrilling reading experience. She hopes to impart to them the uniqueness of people, faithfulness of dogs and the history of St. Augustine.
An excerpt from the book:
Have you heard of the Fountain of Youth, Abigail?
Oh yes. Discovered by Ponce de Leon, right?
My mom drank from the fountain when she was five-years-old. She said she was scared to death she would never get older.
