Joseph Campbell comments on the hero’s journey, “The seeker of the life beyond life must press beyond, surpass the temptation of her call, and soar to the immaculate ether beyond.” Aster Snowden’s journey started early. Her cruel childhood began a cascade of challenges. She endured an abusive father, vacant mother, and peers who detested her obscure gift of predictive dreams. Years go by, and at middle age, Aster remains timid as she struggles to find love.
Grannyme, a so-called dream weaver, acts as Aster’s nocturnal guide. As of late, the old woman messes with fate, and manipulates Aster into a personal quest to find her holy grail.
Jack McFadden time travels into past lives for a living. Unwittingly he is a pawn in Grannyme’s plan for Aster’s self-discovery.
