Flyn Devon has always been haunted by voices. Alcohol and prescription drugs promised peace, but the cost was high. When he’s entrusted with an elk-hide bag representing his grandfather's spirit and told to perform an honor ceremony over it every morning and night for a year, Flyn realizes this might be his chance to understand the voices and learn more about his Lakota roots. The peace he hopes to gain from this knowledge could improve his relationship with Selena, whose dead husband’s spirit won’t leave her alone and who shares a strange and mystical connection with Amach, a medicine woman living in a different time and space.
While trying to help Amach, Selena learns truths that apply to all humans regarding how to stand in balance on our Mother Earth.
Remembering only that he called his grandfather 'Pop Pop’, the spirit bundle enables Flyn to learn more about the man who was revered by family and the people of the Cheyenne River Reservation. With this year-long commitment and a four-day Vision Quest, Flyn finds a chance for reconciliation with his native roots and self-forgiveness from the shame surrounding his addictions. He also learns that Selena and Amach are tied to him by threads that weave a tapestry of passion, pain, wisdom, and magic.

With elements of romance, paranormal adventure and mystery, it’s sure to keep readers turning pages long after the sun goes down.
