Lish MacPherson believes she is running from something - a job working for a corrupt firm that bilks seniors out of their estates. But she doesn’t realize that her arrival in the small town of Seven Springs may be a matter of destiny.
Lish discovers that a new acquaintance - Noah - shares with her not only a common ancestry but also a common recurring dream about riding a stag to some unknown destination. Their dream is echoed by a legend that haunts the town and is retold to all comers by Lish’s new employer, Thalia Russo.
With developers trying to take over land in Seven Springs, and Lish and Noah fighting to protect Thalia and her home, could it be more than a coincidence that the three were brought together at this critical time? Perhaps that is why all three can hear the distant yowling of a cat during the night.
