Professional mountaineer Lily Harper is building a new life for herself - in ways she never would have expected. She's traded the mountain wilderness of Wyoming for the lush river country of the deep South, where she is busy restoring a fine old Natchez, Mississippi house. And she's rediscovered happiness with Matt Starr, the man she has always loved. But Lily's dreams for the future are suddenly threatened when Matt disappears without a trace. Fearing foul play, she is determined to use her wits - and her will - to find him, embarking on a dangerous journey into unfamiliar territory. Though tested as never before, Lily knows that somehow she is being guided by a source she cannot explain - one that will help her find the courage to hold onto everything that's dear . . .
