Jolene Gibson is a unique woman, having lived on the Bacon River her entire life running Gibson’s Bait and Tackle. A reader of tarot, like her Granny, she enjoys keeping tabs on the townsfolk of her small community near the Virginia/North Carolina border.
Her long-time, but secret boyfriend, banker Lyman Pettigrew, doesn’t believe in her “witchy” activities but asks for a reading anyway. He wants to know how a mysterious plan of his will work out.
Neither Lyman or Jolene have any inkling of the changes soon to sweep through their town. Changes impacting them and everyone they know. Welcome to Magnolia, Virginia, a sleepy village about to wake up.
