Mormons--Fiction; Christian fiction, American; Love stories, American.
Alone at the airport, Howard Rockwood considers two years spent away from home. He has said good-bye to his mission president, but now his head aches. Can he fall back into the routine and expectations of his parents in Utah? Can he muster the drive to follow his instincts—to figure out what he has been unable to wrap his mind around?
He thinks of Allison, the young woman he met, who visits his dreams. She is educated, quick-witted—the kind of "man-eating pagan" that his senile grandfather warned him about but who nonetheless makes him feel alive.
If in order to find yourself you first need to become lost, then Howard is taking a first step toward self-discovery.
