Miranda will fight tyrants, even if they’re family. Even if it costs her freedom...and her life.

One of the elite, Miranda lives a charmed life. But in this 1961, the Fellowship Church rules the United States. She must walk the Fellowship path. Marry the man her parents choose. Follow in his shadow. Be the perfect Fellowship wife.

Miranda fears that trading one gilded cage for another would destroy her. She escapes and begins a new life. A new identity. A life on the run from the Fellowship.

She unravels devastating family secrets. Cruel, inescapable oppression blocks her every move. And callous murder by the mythical Azrael breaks her heart.

No longer blind to the abuse by the Fellowship, she joins the rebels and the fight of her life.

My Soul to Keep is an exciting adventure story, a powerful alternate history, and most of all a multi-layered story of the personal growth of a young woman. Miranda sacrifices a life of privilege to rebel against social constraints and to understand painful personal mysteries about her life, revealed only by flashes of memory and confused dreams. As she fights back against the restrictions and hypocrisy of society, she also discovers the secrets of her life and her family, and chooses the values that will drive her actions—and she refuses to “print the legend.”~William F. Wu, author of Hong on the Range 

About the Author

Lynette M. Burrows is a survivor. She survived moving to seventeen different schools before she graduated from high school. She claims that this makes her uniquely qualified to write a dystopian novel or two.

She enjoys coffee, the pleasure of real books, and the crack of a nine-millimeter, not necessarily all at the same time—although they all appear in her stories. Spiced with a dash of intrigue, a dollop of mayhem, and a liberal dose of automatic weapons, her stories span space and time.

The White Box stories, her collaborations with Rob Chilson, appeared in Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact Magazine. She’s also had stories published in regional and national children’s magazines.

Her series, The Fellowship Dystopia, takes place in America, but it’s 1961 and not the nation you know. Readers have said that the first book in the series, My Soul to Keep, "is a brilliant story, well worth reading, and it leaves you a desire to read more about these characters."

She blogs regularly about inspiration, books, story research, writing, and other subjects of interest. She responds to every comment.

Lynette, her artist husband, and their pack of Yorkies (Astro, Neo, & Gizmo) live in Oz, otherwise known as Kansas.
