The Root Cellar By C. A. Thomas The idea for The Root Cellar came during one of many periods of extemporary daydreams. The first chapter opened up like a giant movie screen and, in the spur of a moment, it became necessary to quickly find a pen and paper. The words were coming so fast in one afternoon, nearly all the main characters had presented themselves. It was time to get out the old typewriter. Yet it was fun for author C. A. Thomas; plotting and planning, talking to herself, taking each characters’ part, repeating each phrase, grimacing in the mirror. The comment that is often lamented about a thing becoming, “a labor of love,” is absolutely understandable. Days went by. And those days turned into weeks. It took two old, run-down typewriters and an out-of-date word processor to eventually finish the original work. Subsequent readings of the completed manuscript led to many changes. Editing of the original got to be quite cumbersome, but The Root Cellar was finally a finished product.
Ray Karhu leaves an archaeological dig to tend to family matters in the Upper Peninsula. What he finds in his Aunts cabin is a legacy he knew nothing about. Viena, a Karelian migr, was a shaman keeping the magical tradition of healing and nature worship of the Arctic Finns alive in the north woods. Rays struggle to accept, understand, and finally embrace this tradition takes him on a wrenching journey of exploration and discovery of the past and the present. Inspired by the Kalevalas mythic images, rhythms, and portends, this story evokes its own brand of magic. Cover art by Kevin Heckeler, www.adkhike.com
