Together with Joline, another close college friend whose spiritual work inspired the trip, they travel to the small mountain village of Otavalo. Immersed in nature and introduced to strange ancient ceremonies, the three friends are pushed to recognize that good health is not only physical. Tess grapples with her inability to trust; Ellie struggles with a painful secret; and Joline worries about the contract she made with an aggressive businessman whose ambitions could destroy the delicate fabric of the local community.
When an ayahuasca ceremony goes awry and an unlikely betrayal suddenly threatens to unravel their decades-long friendship, these three very different women awaken to a shared realization: they each have a deep need for healing.
Ellie, Joline, and Tess...friends since college, but with the connections they've forged over the years, they've become sister soul mates, if ever there were. You can't help but admire their individual strengths, and yet how they grow that much more in each other's presence. It's a good thing to, because although this was initially a trip for healing Ellie's physical ailment, it's going to turn into a life changing event for them all. Secrets are uncovered, lost desires found, destinies questioned, and old paths forged anew, all with a side of laughter, despair, heartache, and hope. It's a trip like none other, but in the end, they won't want to change a thing.
