The Good Teacher: Women of Willow Wood Book 1 by Lorraine Carey.
I just finished reading this book and my review follows the authors book blurb found on Amazon.
“When first-year teacher Daniella Reyes starts teaching at a new school she is frightened by the crows that follow her everywhere. As a woman with highly empathic abilities and the victim of child abuse, she is tuned to pick up the vibes from abused children in her classroom. She’s desperate to help them while trying to cling to a normal life with Luke. As she slowly discovers the secrets of a powerful, ancient cult, and New Mexico’s hidden world opens up to her, she finds that her life is anything but normal. She must make a life-altering sacrifice if she wants to save the children, her father’s soul, and her own life.
This paranormal thriller is book 1 of Women of the Willow Wood.”
