Sophia Secrets Synopsis
When writer Anne Demaree moves from New Mexico to a bungalow by the sea in Southwest Harbor, Maine, she hasn't a clue what is in store for her. After a life-altering experience at a Kali Temple in India, Anne is determined to get her life on track and so she prays to Kali.
However, Anne neglects to take into account that you do not ask for Kali’s help without accepting the consequences. Kali is, after all, the Goddess of Transformation.
A mysterious old woman bearing no resemblance to Kali, shows up while Anne is hiking on a mossy trail in Acadia National Park. The woman tells Anne she must follow her, because Anne is running out of time. Is the old woman real? Anne suspects the old woman is a forest being, kind of like you might find in Ireland.

Bizarre sights to see amidst firs and birches while cross-country skiiing on a Carriage Road or rowing to a nearby island on the icy Atlantic.

On a search for the enigmatic Mother of her childhood, the Mother who promised she would some day return, luce encounters wolves, coyotes, shamans, desert tricksters, her own inner demons, and more. A story of adventure and romance in the tradition of quest literature
