by Pamela Forrest

High-powered film executive Caroline Davis is on her way to a very important meeting on the Oregon coast. Preoccupied with phone calls, she takes a wrong turn and ends up stuck in the mud, on an old logging road. Thunder rolls. Cell service drops. Rain begins to pour. But there’s a light, in the distance. A cabin in the woods. Perfect! Caroline jumps out of the car and hurries off, through the rain, in search of a phone, unaware that her life is about to change forever, thanks to a mysterious old woman who lives in the cabin. Her name is Violet Underwood, and she’s the last living resident of Valsetz, Oregon – Population 1.
