Saga’s beloved mother begins to suffer the irreversible effects of dementia and Saga must step up and assume the leadership of her family’s timber and mining business which has been in her family for hundreds of years. Has Saga’s appointment been approved because the members of the board believe she is capable or only capable of being manipulated?
Saga moves between her past lives and her current life as she struggles with all of the shifting alliances and competing agendas while urgently attempting to put together the disparate pieces of this puzzle. The names and faces of people from her past also inhabit the present, each playing a part as the conflict widens and the stakes become higher.
Saga finds herself in the center of a dangerous international conspiracy that threatens the family business, the indigenous Sámi people, the ancient migratory path of the reindeer, as well as the safety and security of her country, and the survival of Mother Earth.
Who will come to her aid when all avenues to a successful resolution are blocked by her evil adversary who has stalked her from lifetime to lifetime? Saga must distinguish who she can trust from those who are motivated by greed and intent on doing her harm.
Is this the ultimate conflict she has prepared for throughout the trials and tribulations of all of her incarnations?
