Chased from university teaching by scandalous rumors about her research with shamans, controversial professor, Dr. Kay Halefin, abandons her post and escapes to the rural Northern California coast. There she takes a mundane job in data entry at a raw food chef school. But mundane does not describe her life for long. On the way home from a pagan Meet-Up, she encounters a 10th century bard, Baird of Anglesey, who draws her with him to the past. Once she’s had a taste of the medieval era, she becomes obsessed with returning to a time when healers and wanderers have magical powers, embroider changes in reality, and spirit-travel. Slipping in and out of the past, Kay finds herself embroiled in dark plots that threaten her and her two grown children. At first a mere pawn, shuffled at others’ whims, she gains her own powers. But will they be enough?
