In this era of war, disease, and natural disaster, we often feel as bystanders to God and the powers around us. Not Amelia. She is determined to wrestle from the powers of nature and authority the right to pen her own story. Seizing the opportunity to escape her Honduran exile, Amelia sets out on a Western adventure.

Now she must defy the unyielding hand of fate and demand from it the right to define her own existence. But how can Amelia maintain her grip on such a slippery pen?
