NAPLES, Fla. - Nov. 27, 2018 - PRLog -- Barringer Publishing is proud to announce the signing of a new Young Adult (YA) fantasy novel by Ouida D.W. titled Sunbeam and the Curse of the Golden Key.

Sunbeam, the main character carries a dark secret. It's Sumbeam's fault her twin sister, Gilda  disappeared. Now it's up to her to find Gilda, and hopefully find her alive. This suspenseful fantasy is narrated by a special warhorse named Whitewing, who has an ability called the second sight: a strong animal instinct that knows what his master, Sunbeam, is thinking and feeling.

Whitewing tells the dangerous plight of fourteen-year-old Sunbeam: a spunky, impulsive outcast whose fierce devotion to find her missing twin sister is threatened by a harsh despot named Lord Wolford. Sunbeam's twin sister disappeared five years ago. Worse, she never knew her father; he mysteriously left the family. So now, Sunbeam lives with her mother, who references a "nameless threat," but never answers Sunbeam's questions. She and her mother live on the gloomy island of Ozmandia, ruled by Lord Wolford and his cryptic Guild.

When Sunbeam finds a mysterious Golden Key, she and her horse, Whitewing, are catapulted into the Depths of Cypress, a shadowy forest where she discovers traces of her missing twin, Gilda. Along the journey, she realizes that she's not only trying to find her twin sister, but she is on the verge of losing her own life after she discovers an ancient creed that unveils deep mysteries about the island's "nameless threat." Through it all, Whitewing sticks close by her side as they try to restore hope, aid, and freedom to the people of the island—and most of all—uncover the truth about Gilda.

Through her struggles with grief and loss, Sunbeam learns valuable lessons on the importance of self-forgiveness, letting go, and moving forward. In the end, she awakens to the truth that even from the rubbles of tragedy, great good can grow. The book also explores the miraculous wonder, intelligence, supreme loyalty, and beauty that horses bring into their relationships with mankind.

Author and Playwright, Ouida D.W. has taught English throughout Florida schools. She is currently an English Professor. She has a strong theatre background, loves the arts, and making beautiful things with creative people. Her plays have been performed throughout Florida, one winning an "excellent" at the FL Thespian District Competition. Regarding the content of the book, her own family has a history with horses. She was always fascinated that her great grandfather was a cowboy who broke horses and performed in Wild West shows. The author's grandmother used to talk of riding in a horse and buggy out West and watching the wild stallions run free.
