Cave Walker tells the story of Gillian Berry, a talented breakfast chef who works at her mother’s charming B&B, the Pointed Firs Inn. After Gillian foresees the death of her love interest, Neil Foster, she nervously journeys into the Cave of Desperate Cries in the deep woods of Maine, hoping to save his life. This cave is known to be a holy place where people go for miracles, but many have entered and not returned. The caves take Gillian on an adventure as she unravels the truth behind the “ancestor syndrome” in her family and tries to heal the trauma that has been passed down through five generations of women. When Gillian returns from the caves, she reunites with her estranged father, who is now a permaculture designer and lives in an eco-village. She learns the truth about Neil Foster and her premonition of his death. Her encounters while traveling the caves allow her to finally realize who she really is, a cave walker and a healer.
