You're never too old to make a bad decision. After twenty winters on the road, Tanyth Fairport makes one last pilgrimage in her quest to learn all she can about the herbs and medicinal plants of Korlay before settling down to write her magnum opus. Her journey is interrupted when she decides to help a small village and learns that much of what she knows of the world may not be quite as it seems. Nathan Lowell blends wiccan tradition and shamanistic lore into a fantasy quest for a new - if unlikely - heroine. She learns that the familiar sometimes hides the fantastic and that, even when you think you’ve made your decisions, life doesn’t always agree.

A NEW GIFT...THANK YOU
Mr. Lowell has given us a new gift. As a fan of the "Share series" I was eagerly awaiting the release of this new work. He demonstrates his unique style in this new tale. After a few minutes of listening I was hooked on the story line and have shared this link with many of my friends and family. Mr. Lowell has a wonderful speaking voice that would make a reading of the Britanica encyclopedia riveting. We all love the character development and the story line. We can't wait until his works come out in print.
When this was mentioned in Solar Clipper, I thought, oh well, not my genre at all, so I was prepared to say.... great style, blah blah blah. I couldn't believe it when I was captured into the virtual pages. I re listened to episodes waiting for others to be released. Thanks for the great escape.
Thanks for a really fine story
I would enjoy discussing this book with a group – preferably with a cup of tea in my hands and sitting in sight of a fireplace. Thank you Nathan Lowell for a really fine story, I enjoyed it very much. (And always I look forward to more!)
