Simply making it through each day, one lonely step at a time, has been an enormous challenge. While dealing with her own grief, she has had to shoulder all the responsibilities that go with raising two young children on her own. Fortunately, she has solid support from caring work colleagues and neighbors. She has another source of support, too—her own special secret. It is a legendary place that she often visits. It is said to bestow its restoring energies upon certain people, who are capable of receiving and absorbing them. Karyn is one of those fortunate people. Her first year of widowhood is coming to an end, when one chilly December morning, she meets Anna at the neighborhood kiosk. They have known each other casually over the years. Karyn discovers that Anna is gravely ill and vows to do everything she can to help lighten Anna’s load. The two young women soon become close friends.

When she discovers she has a gift of healing powers, she struggles desperately to understand those powers better, to use them to save her dear friend’s life. Karyn must embrace her power and the loneliness that accompanies it.
