Inhaltsangabe: Claire DuMond can't believe her father would simply lapse into a coma for no apparent reason. Even his doctors are mystified. And she's not the type to sit around and wring her hands. So Claire sets out to learn the cause, and soon lands on the Caribbean island of Martinique. There she finds romance. Meets a real live witch doctor. And steps smack into the middle of a world of drug smuggling where nosing around is not a good idea. But that's only half of it. Claire also travels deep into the dimension we call the mind, and back in time, in her effort to discover the root of the father's illness. In the words of book reviewer Richard Fuller, "Occasionally, perhaps even rarely, a novel is written that brings together heart-racing action with heart-rending insight. Such is In My Father's House." This thriller is a great read that won the WRITER'S DIGEST BOOK AWARD and the IPPY from INDEPENDENT PRESS. It is being made into a movie by Vistamar Films.
From the Publisher: Vistamar Films is making this novel into a movie. Leading actresses are vying for the part of Claire DuMond. And people are asking, "Is the story true?"
"Yes," says the author. "The events recounted in the Foreword and Afterword did take place in the summer of '93." Martin explained that on a family vacation at a Maine resort, he met a mysterious stranger, an older woman he oddly felt he'd known all his life. When his wife and daughter went on a shopping excursion to Freeport, leaving him behind, the woman told him the amazing secret that changed her life, and now was destined to change his.
"You're going to write my story," she said.
He suddenly felt ill at ease.
"You'll change my name, of course."
"You're serious, aren't you?"
"But why me?" By then he knew she'd been a journalist. "Why not write it yourself?"
"I don't want the publicity. And I've had a feeling you'd walk into my life."
"What makes your story so astounding it would make you, and will make me, famous?"
"And hounded by talk show hosts?"
"And hounded by talk show hosts."
"The secret of life," she said.
"My story contains the secret of life."
