BJ Hathaway is a busy anthropologist teaching in New
Mexico. Unexpectedly she inherits an old house on the St.
Marks River and an ecological restoration project forcing her to return home to North Florida. Upon her return, she enters
into the work of restoration, resumes old friendships, and works on unresolved relationships from her past. In the
process, she encounters dangers she did not know were there.
As she begins to reestablish herself in North Florida and work on the conservation project she is met with surprising
resistance from some resentful members of the Board. An angry person from her past spurned in her youth, threatens
both the project and her life. She must defeat her nemesis or lose all. In the process, she finds love in the arms of a man she once knew but never forgot.
