After the random purchase of a piece of property deep in the Appalachian Mountains, the author makes a startling discovery when he finds his mother’s maiden name written on the bottom corner of the plat. He now suspects it was no accident he came to be here and the adventure begins as he tries to figure out who brought him here and why.
The story is about the author’s quest to understand his family’s history and his purpose in the arbitrary purchase of an old mill site unexpectedly once owned by his ancestors. As Miller wrestles with the coincidences of his life and his strong belief that nothing happens by chance, the history of the Appalachian Region of Virginia where he’s made his new home begins to reveal its secrets.
Intertwined with Miller’s own discovery about his family’s past, artifacts are discovered on his property and paranormal activity begins. While not violent or threatening, this activity launches Miller on a quest to understand the true history of his family’s land in Clover Hollow, a sacred river and dam complex rich with artifacts and history going back thousands of years. The more Miller uncovers, the more he’s driven toward the belief that these events are all connected, and he is a crucial part.
