Rave Reviews Book Club’s – Bethany Turner – MAY ’15 “PAY IT FORWARD WEEK” Day One

It is my privilege on this first day of our May 2015 “PAY IT FORWARD WEEK” to introduce our membership to Dr. Tara Fairfield! Tara is a supportive member of Rave Reviews, a Christian, psychologist, speaker and author of Young Adult novels which I will showcase below. If you haven’t already, please take a close look at Tara’s novels and support her by making a purchase. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

Book CoverShe didn’t normally approach strange men, but he appeared to be drowning when Tessa found him on the beach of Lanai. It was no coincidence. Moho had been expecting her. His eyes locked onto hers for a moment—intense, piercing. His gaze was difficult to break. She felt drawn toward him, as if he had some sort of power over her. Something was definitely not right. Alarm bells went off in Tessa’s head, and she found herself being pulled deep into the tropical waters, away from her island home.

Far beneath the earth’s surface, Tessa discovers the key to her royal destiny in the land of Moku-ola. As a whole new and astonishing world opens up to her, the real question becomes can she survive it?

And if she survives, will Tessa choose to deny the Creator’s wildly imaginative plan for her life, instead allowing a lack of forgiveness and trust to keep her stuck in the safe harbor of the past? Or will she discover the courage to embrace her destiny, which has been hidden from sight, deep beneath the ocean floor, since long before she was born?

Christian Psychologist Tara Fairfield delves deep into the the teenage girl’s soul through Tessa, a fictional character who overcomes barriers to developing healthy, loving relationships in Makai Queen. It’s an adventurous journey to forgiveness and to acceptance of God’s love and the unique plan He has for every young girl’s life.


Book CoverA new queen reigns beneath the sea in the underwater kingdom of Moku-ola. Armed with a sense of destiny, and friends loyal and true, Queen Tessa faces her greatest challenge ever as the ruler of sharks threatens her kingdom. Her heart has chosen one man to become her king, but another seeks to take it by force. Can her strength and resolve endure? Will her faith in the Creator’s plan and protection remain?

In Makai King, second book in the Makai Series, Christian psychologist Tara Fairfield continues the adventures of Tessa in the whimsical world of Moku-ola, which began in Makai Queen, showing readers the power of forgiveness and understanding your identity as a child of God.
