It opens with the author ready to move. She is in the UK, and the reader is introduced to her mindset and the maze of things that run through her mind every time she has to start on a new journey. The moment of preparation is crucial. She takes readers with her on an epic journey to Asia with its sacred places, to unique places in the USA and Australia. Readers encounter in April Lee Fields a questing, curious, and inquisitive soul as she travels across continents.
