Synopsis:

In Mississippi, there's a path, a trail of legend. It's a path forged by ghosts, treasure, witches, outlaws, and living history ...

"I am what life has made me—the crazy one, the wild girl with hair tangled by the wind. Seen walking often along the path, I travel it because it allows me to pass unimpeded, On this path, I am not big or small, I am not pretty or plain, I am not quiet or loud, I do not judge and am not judged. I am not blind. I am strong, I am different, and I am free."

19 year-old Laney Reynolds has become a living legend. The daughter of a famous fortune teller, she was born not only with her mother's ability, but blind. People come from far and wide to hear their fortunes. To escape the public, Laney has gone into hiding in the small home left to her by her grandmother in Natchez, MS.

21 year-old Jenson Mason is troubled. A Derrick-hand in the oil field with a family to support, there's no time in his life for affection. But that was before...

A chance meeting, a brief touch in passing, and everything changes. For there are secrets in the dark woods and in Natchez's history. Dark secrets found along The Mysterious Pathway.
