Working for National Geographic, Neev is led to the Everglades swamp where a mysterious ghost orchid has bloomed. The flower’s roots are wrapped tightly around the trunk of an ancient cypress tree. For Neev the orchid has a healing, cleansing power.

Roger views the ghost orchid as a spiritual messenger. What is the connection between the ghost orchid and the death of Mel, the woman who died near the sanctuary where the ghost orchid has magically appeared and bloomed? How will this connect to Neev and change her life?

The novel’s theme is positve: Love transcends death. The interrelationships are complex and the story is absorbing. The reader will not want to put the book down until the final page has been turned.
