In 1815, Tara and her husband take over the family import/export business at a time when dramatic changes are taking place throughout Europe and the Americas. They reconstruct the business to improve its sustainability within the changing world around them. Through all this change, Tara and her family’s main focus is to move down to the ancient farm and associated co-operative. Through many adventures, Tara and her family achieve their objectives and end their days in the land of Tara’s ancestors. The land of a young girl who against the odds not only survives through the first tumultuous years of Norman occupation of her Saxon homeland in the first century AD but becomes a leader who shows her people how to adapt to a changing world while still remaining linked their heritage and lands. Tara’s ancestor laid a path from which she cannot deviate even if she knew what the path was throughout her youth, adulthood, and old age; the mystic pathway of Tara’s inheritance. But as always, the family returns to the land to which they are inexplicably linked but which has also taken care of them through the centuries.
