The Keeper of the Diary, a Gripping New Novel Takes Readers on a Transformational Journey that Uncovers Vital Keys to the Real-life Problems Facing Our World

— A mysterious diary turns out to hold secrets for unraveling the ancient mysteries needed to save the world. Readers will find themselves empowered as they follow an
unsuspecting photographer on a dangerous and revealing journey that puts everything she knows at risk —

Nothing and no one are what they appear to be in The Keeper of the Diary the new novel from visionary artist and writer Judith Diana Winston.

This book makes us question everything we think we know about our world.It reveals – in an unexpected way – the truth behind the incomprehensible events in our planet’s long,hidden history – and the ancient relationship between Earth and its earliest and most powerful, helpers and teachers.

Circumstances force a young woman photographer named Cassie to take an unlikely assignment in Egypt, where a diary mysteriously appears in her camera case. Inexplicably drawn to its content, Cassie begins to discover a surprising connection to the diary’s writer. She doesn’t know whether to believe it, but if the diary is true, it means not only that its writer is in mortal danger but also our entire world.

The discovery of the diary starts Cassie on a journey that takes her to some of the world’s most ancient and enigmatic sacred sites, and leads her to uncover some of the planet’s
largely hidden, primeval and powerful knowledge—including the surprising secret of her past.

As her startling mission becomes clearer, Cassie finds herself and the diary’s distant (or not-so-distant) writer tapping into a potent stream of knowledge and energy that has flowed through ancient civilizations from Atlantis to Egypt and Israel, to South America and the South Pacific. It gradually becomes clear that understanding the secrets that
underlie our world and these civilizations is not just a stop on a tour bus, but rather it is essential to battling the forces of darkness, ignorance, fear, and separation that threaten our very planet.

To find the diary’s owner and save him, Cassie must overcome her own self-doubt, and come to terms with her gifts and passions, and with a purpose she never knew she had.

Both heartfelt and intense, the book shows us what is at stake at this critical point in time. Winston offers both an important warning for mankind and a profound belief in
humanity’s potential. (Goodreads)
My Thoughts:
Cassie is a photographer who ends up going to Egypt for a job. While there, a diary ends up mysteriously in her possession. She is determined to find out who the diary belongs to and return it but after reading it she realizes that this diary was meant to be in her hands. There are people who would kill to get this book from her and she quickly realizes that this diary has put her in danger. Her main focus now is to unlock the mystery within these pages and fulfill her destiny before it is too late.
This was a really interesting story. It was a lot of fun to be able to travel with Cassie to all of these sacred sites and learn more about them. That was probably the best part of the book for me. It felt like it took me forever and a day to finish this book but I really did enjoy it. You get to read the contents of the diary, which I sometimes found to be a little long, but it really added even more to Cassie's story. This book has it all. It's mysterious, mystical, mythical, and suspenseful. It has good vs. evil, extraterrestrials, spirituality, energy, etc. There is so much in this book but if I tried to add it all into this review it would be a book itself. You'll just have to read it for yourself!
