It is the summer of 1977, on the cusp of a technological revolution that will soon cause the world to shrink. Seventeen year old James Earl Williams arrived in Natchez, Mississippi, looking forward to a new beginning far from the world of his New Jersey childhood. After years of life in gang riddled neighborhoods and fast paced crime, life has come to a virtual standstill.
But all is not as quiet as it first seems. Supernatural forces are beckoning to James, searching for a treasure hidden deep inside him. The changes he expected when he arrived are far different from the transformations about to overtake him and his family. His first surprise comes in the form of an annoying nightly sound - one that his grandparents dismiss as the natural decline of their aging homestead. The second surprise fits inside a pair of tight blue jeans, has bright blue eyes and long wavy black hair - Jolie Lefleur Dimanche. And she has had a dream impossible to ignore, one which lures her into a torrid relationship with James Earl.
Tormented by the past and present, love and hope will entice James Earl Williams into a dark place where dreams and premonitions come alive. One wrong decision could easily take him to a place of no return.
