A mysterious path through an orchard in the Emerald Valley of British Columbia, Canada, attracts the attention of young Ava, who knows that her grandmother's house is at the end of that trail. Why do so many local people visit Ava's grandmother with their troubles and problems? As Ava watches, her grandmother blesses the visitors with her extraordinary gifts of compassion, empathy and,
most of all, listening.
In an age before many people relied on professional counseling, emotional caregivers came from the community. Ava's grandmother is such a caregiver, gifted with unusual insight and said to have seen an angel.
