What if your ten-year-old knew more about your past than anyone in the world - even you?
Sheri Lambert is the classic New York workaholic: driven ad exec, financially successful, emotionally empty. Searching for meaning in her life, Sheri becomes a single mother. From the start, her son, Zig, displays strange behavior. He recalls people and places he couldn't possibly know and leads Sheri to a startling discovery of a hidden ancestry she never knew existed. With Zig, the past alters the present and reality merges with the fantastic.
From the urban grind of present-day Brooklyn to the shamans and rituals in the rain forests of 19th century Panama and Costa Rica, two interwoven stories collide. Sheri learns she must find the courage to trust Zig and his mystical guidance to uncover the secrets of her past - or remain lost from herself and the truth about her origins.
"A beautiful and compelling novel about a mother's yearning - for her origins, for unconditional love, for the sacred, and for the secret behind her son's mysterious connections to the past." (Nancy Peske, Co-Author, Cinematherapy for the Soul)
"The opening scene is a gritty one of a woman giving birth on the Brooklyn Bridge. Which of course means I can't stop reading even if I wanted to. What a way to open a book!" (Tiphanie Yanique, Author, Land Of Love And Drowning)
"I was totally taken by the modern woman's struggle with identity and spirituality." (Catherine Texier, Author, Victorine)
"Annette Leach weaves a fascinating historical love story with a present day, single mother's quest for self-discovery. In both women work to transcend the cultural norms of their time. A well written, thoroughly enjoyable page turner." (Deirdre Fishel, writer, director, and producer, Sperm Donor X)

Good story but mediocre narrator.
