Zoe walked out of a career she hated so she could live a life true to herself. The problem was, she didn't yet know what that would be. With the help of her three best friends, she was having a wonderful time exploring the possibilities of this and that, when she was hit with a shocking discovery that would change her life forever.
Just as she felt her future slipping from her grasp, her beloved grandmother, who had died twenty years earlier, began showing up in her dreams with advice for her. Following the guidance, with the encouragement of her friends, Zoe has one adventure after another that lead her into the beginnings of a very different sort of life.
In the midst of eventful days and wondrous dreams at night, Zoe has random memories of a man she deeply loves - but has never met. The experiences bring up a profound feeling of love and loss that make no sense to her at all, but are somehow more real to her than her daily life, leaving her with an inexplicable longing she must find a way to live with.
When she feels she needs a break from the whirlwind of her life, Zoe travels to the picturesque high desert of New Mexico with one of her friends, only to find that the elusive peace and quiet she seeks is not to be found here, either. Instead, she is thrown into a world of mystery and strange adventures that finally deposit her firmly on her path and send her back home to Brooklyn where her true life begins.
