Lucy sat before the old house remembering the Gypsy's words. "It will be a twisting road, filled with much sorrow..." It had been a long road, too. The house raised memories she didn't want. The tour guide was busy telling the crowd the story of the plantation recently acquired by the state. The brutality and terror went back centuries... but was much more recent than she knew. Jason was studying her face, concern in his eyes. Lucy realized she had been away long enough. Memories buried for years had to now be faced for Lucy to step beyond her dark past into a future of hope, a future of love. This story touches all emotions and covers a lifetime.
