Summary
Born in Alabama, Paula Vauss spent the first decade of her life on the road with her free-spirited young mother, Kai, an ininerant storyteller who blended Hindu mythology with southern oral tradition to reinvent their history as they roved. But everthing, including Paula's birth name, Kali Jai, changed when she told a story of her own--one that landed Kai in prison and Paula in foster care. Separated, each holding secrets of her own, the intense bond they once shared fractured. These days, Paula has reincarnated herself as a tough-as-nails divorce attorney with a successful practice in Atlanta. While she hasn't seen Kai in fifteen years, she's still making payments on that karmic debt--until the day her last check is returned in the mail, along with a mystifying note. Then Kai's most treasured secret literally lands on Paula's doorstep, throwing her life into chaos and transforming her from only child to older sister. Desperate to find her mother before it's too late, Paula sets off on a journey of discovery that will take her back to the past and into the deepest recesses of her heart
Summary
After being placed in foster care, Paula Vauss grows up to become a tough divorce attorney only to have her life thrown into chaos by an astonishing revelation and a cryptic message from the mother she has not seen in years
