About The Door Keeper:
Adventure. Love. Destiny.
Single mom Eden Saunders has learned that tragedy is simply a part of life. Her mother died during childbirth, and her husband was killed just three years after they married. On a journey to discover where she comes from, Eden inherits the key to unlocking new worlds from her deceased mother—including the world that should have been her home. The only thing stopping her from exploring them is the fear of leaving her daughter behind. Caught up in the circle of legacy, Eden discovers the mother-daughter bond that even death cannot break.
My Review: This is a really great book about discovering your roots, your destiny, and deciding what exactly to do with that knowledge when it will completely change your life. Eden is a fascinating character. I love the other worlds created by Steen, who does a great job using descriptive language to make you feel as if you're there with Eden. This is a great book I really recommend.

About Steen Jones:
Steen was born and raised in Woodstock, Georgia. While she has only recently discovered her passion for writing, she has always been an artist and a storyteller. A couple of years ago, a story idea gripped her and wouldn’t let go until she wrote it all down. The Door Keeper is her debut novel and she can’t wait to pursue all of the other stories that have built up in her over the last three and a half decades. When she isn’t writing, reading, painting, or baking, Steen enjoys spending time Netflixing with her husband and playing in the pool with her two children at their North Georgia home. To read more about Steen, you can visit her on her website.
Excerpt: Everything welled up inside me. Confusion, fear, overwhelming grief, love, wonderment . . . it was all consuming, like a nightmarish fog filling every square inch inside me, heavy and thick. I'd never met my mother, but over the past thirty minutes, I’d come to love her fiercely. And yet, I was angry, betrayed that she would leave me alone where I apparently didn’t belong—on the other side of her Door. Through the dense fog of emotion, light pierced the darkness—knowledge and information, both of which had eluded me until now. I knew I would likely spend the rest of my life trying to process this information, but some things seemed to fall into place. The puzzle pieces that were isolated from my life now pieced together, and I finally had part of my family tree, giving me roots on which I could stand.
Yet, all of the burning questions still remained.
