With love and loss tangled together, how was she to know where her life would lead? Allie Kirkland has always heard the call of her father's unfinished destiny. When she's offered a production assistant's job on a docudrama filming in the hills near Moses Lake, Texas, the dream of following in her director-father's footsteps suddenly seems within reach. The reenactment of the legendary frontier settlement of Wildwood is a first step into the film industry. A summer on set in the wilderness is a small price to pay for a dream. But in 1861, the real Wildwood held dangerous realities. Town founder Harland Delavan held helpless residents, including young Irish schoolteacher Bonnie Rose, in an iron grip. Mysterious disappearances led to myths and legends still retold in the region's folk songs. Eventually, the entire site was found abandoned. When filming begins, strange connections surface between Allie and the teacher who disappeared over a century ago, and everyone in Wildwood--including Blake Fulton, Allie's handsome neighbor on the film set--seems to be hiding secrets. Allie doesn't know whom she can trust. If she can't find the answers in time, history may repeat itself...with the most unthinkable results.

"Many people don't know that to achieve health and wellness, it takes much more than eating healthy and exercising; we need to look at the different dimensions of health that affect our well-being," Williamson says. In her book, she discusses these aspects of well-being as well as information about how sleep, food and stress affect a person's overall health. She also points out how different healing modalities can work together. Don't give up. There's hope. "Readers of this book will find themselves joining Dela's insightful journey through her experiences with cancer. This book is more about the journey and the choices we can make along that journey. The book covers a broad spectrum of important "healthy living" related topics, and its spirit pays homage to the fundamental holistic principle that has been echoed throughout the ages: "In living nature, the whole is more (or different) than the sum of its parts."
