After a tragic fall ends her ballet career, Chelly Bernardi must find a new identity off the stage. The continuing aftermath of her accident strains her marriage and when a work opportunity in Texas is presented to her husband, she agrees to relocate hoping to escape the memories of the life she loved and lost.
In Austin, Texas, past and present collide; forces beyond human control converge. Chelly’s psychic gifts, which have been dormant for years are reawakened. Instead of the new identity and the peace she seeks, she is pushed in directions she doesn’t understand by the spirit of a Cherokee Indian, and a new friendship pulls her into a scheme of revenge, kidnapping, murder and a desperate race to find a lost treasure of Confederate gold.
Will her extra sensory perception help to solve the events of the past that have collided with the present, or will the forces of greed, revenge, self-pity and hatred result in murder and the destruction of a family? Chelly must gather her courage and her experience with another ghost and another murder to save a little girl’s life and help a family she has come to love as her own.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
