Struck down first by her fiancé's death in Iraq, and now the loss of her long-suffering mother, a young woman searches for the meaning of life. A letter-followed by a phone call-from an aunt she didn't know existed, beckons Juniper Sutton to a secluded resort in the mountains of Colorado. Hoping to seek answers to her father's death 22 years prior-and wanting to escape feeling cornered by a relationship she doesn't want-Juniper accepts the invitation and leaves Kansas for the Rocky Mountains. Upon arrival in Colorado Springs, Juniper is befriended by two of the men employed by her aunt at the lodge. Wes, with his good looks and sensitivity, draws her with his charm. drake-more of the mountain man type-leaves her confused, yet intrigued, by his brash manner. Aunt Rosalee Sutton's down home charm touches Juniper's heart, even while she is thrust into a new way of thinking and encounters extraordinary people and ideas at the Rainbow Majestic Lodge, a healing and light center. Having been converted from a successful hunting resort, the Rainbow Majestic now caters to light workers and is preparing for its semi-annual holistic fair as Juniper agrees to manage the lodge's new gift shop. At the same time, she absorbs a huge dose of new philosophy through books and interaction with the various residents at the lodge. From the somewhat promiscuous massage therapist, Clover Wolff, to the overzealous handwriting analyst, Taffi Kincaid, Juniper piles up new friendships that also include the Goth-leaning awakener, Starla Streber. Aunt Rosalee's stepdaughter, Gena Sutton Howard, is Juniper's first cousin, and sets herself up from the beginning to challenge Juniper every step of the way. However, Gena's psychic ability uncovers something she'd rather not know about the young woman from Kansas, and the lodge's dark secrets begin to spill out-even to the point of murder.
