Excitement abounds on Beaver Island in northern Lake Michigan. A recent archeological dig has uncovered a mysterious circle of stones like a mini-Stonehenge dating back hundreds of years and undoubtedly the lost sacred grounds of the Odawa Indians. The discovery is made upon the eighty acres of land that the Graham family has owned for generations.
Kitt Graham and her siblings embark on a day’s excursion to the island to share in the community’s excitement over the find and to visit their property with the curious arrangement of stones. The excitement of the trip is a boon to Kitt, whose life is at a standstill. Scarred by lost love and job-weary, she struggles to find meaning but has become cynical, fearful that love will never find her again.
Kitt’s one-day excursion turns into several days when a hiking mishap brings her into the arms of the handsome part-Irish, part-Odawa detective Ben Donovan. Together, they face new love but also become embroiled with a demented killer whose messianic destiny is pre-ordained with the recent election of the first Mormon President.
