Faye Longchamp is digging out of her depth. Back in school to pursue her dream of becoming an archaeologist, she has been asked to run a project for which she is barely qualified, under the direction of a man who doesn’t seem to like her much. Her assignment—to uncover the origins of a mysterious ethnic group of people called the Sujosa who have lived in Alabama’s most remote hills for centuries—is exciting and significant: the Sujosa have shown impressive immunity to many diseases…including AIDS.

Late one night, Faye sleepily realizes that she is warm for the first time since leaving home, but the cozy moment is interrupted by a woman’s scream. Faye is warm because the house is on fire. She saves herself and one of her housemates, but her friend Carmen, the project historian, never had a chance. Within days, an 18-year-old boy commits suicide, jumping from a cell phone tower that, when completed, will bring the outside world into the Sujosa community.

Faye’s archaeology skills at ferreting out the past may help her unravel the two mysterious deaths, and they just might save her life. She has few clues beyond her own intuition to tell her that the two deaths are related, but the oral histories Carmen was compiling before she died may hold the answers she needs.
