A young archaeologist.
An ancient Maya temple.
An expedition that digs up more than just artifacts.
Student archaeologist Maddie Phoenix is up to her ears in trouble in Central America. Angered by her family's denial of her Maya heritage, she leaps headfirst into an archaeology expedition with her college classmates. She awakens to the modern Maya world of shamanism and herbal healing just as the research team collapses and she is threatened with arrest and deportation. It doesn't help matters that her best friend thinks she's crazy or that her professor is in love with her. Only the support of a native Maya teacher can save Maddie from emotional breakdown and set her on her true path.
