Do you believe in second chances?
Sixty-something Evie D’Arico is just reaching for her morning coffee when suddenly she finds herself slumped on her kitchen floor. She’s unable to move a muscle, but still sees and feels everything around her. Her soul slowly leaves her body, rises over the earth, and travels through a dimension of color and stars, coming to rest in a primordial forest of fragrant trees and neon green moss.
A place from memory. The life of a person she used to be.
She jumps to her feet and waits for the familiar neck pain and stiff knees. Instead, a young, lithe body moves with animal grace and stealth. A garment fashioned from supple hide is smooth against her skin. Massive trees with shaggy bark of russet brown shelter her. What is this place?
An overriding thought shatters the reverie: Move quietly! Do not even breathe! Listen before you move. Make sure you are alone.
One thing is certain. She is a long way from home.
