Paige Garrett, a freelance sculptor from North Branford, Connecticut, travels to Old Quebec City with a friend, after relenting to a last minute request to fill in for an ill companion. Carefree hours of sight-seeing and relaxation in Le Vieux Quebec turn to anxiety and doubt-ridden moments as she stands on the corner of Rue de Temple, and eyes the small white non-descript business card in her hand, and against her better judgement, crosses the cobblestoned street and enters the quaint, dimly-lit bookstore.

An Obscure Haven
Haunted by the puzzling death of her parents two years earlier, and after a year of research and introspection, Phyl Alexander, a thirty-two year old assistant manager of a financial firm in Manhattan, packs up and moves to a cottage on Lake Saint Catherine in southern Vermont, leaving Jonathan, her boyfriend of three years behind. Phyl longs for a simpler life, where she has control of her future, planning on becoming a full-time potter, and herb grower. Jonathan, a lawyer, reluctantly helps her relocate to the scenic locale, near the small town of Wellsley. Within the span of seven months, Phyl builds her pottery business and organic herb farm, becoming part of the close-knit community of business owners that her middle-aged neighbor, Emma, keeps organized through her dinner parties. Upon meeting Thad, a forty-two year old veterinarian, Phyl finds that Lake Saint Catherine's is not the safe refuge she had sought, and she reluctantly faces once again the reality of death and her belief in an afterlife. Phyl's immersion in the eastern philosophy of pottery, and the belief that the potter must become one with the vessel, traveling through its various stages - from its beginning as earth, to its shape as a malleable clay body, to its final, permanent form forged in fire - is the thread that connects her life's events.

PERILOUS ASSURANCE takes place in 1969, against the backdrop of escalating civil unrest over the Vietnam war.

While walking around the small group of chanting and poster-waving students, she happens to meet Clayton Payne Adamore, and immediately dislikes his over-bearing attitude and wonders why he is there, since he doesn't fit in with the younger protesters. She wonders if he's a government agent spying on the students, or perhaps, an outside agitator. Mattie has not formed an opinion of the war, and is more concerned about her job and students' safety than politics at that point in her life, but as time passes, to her dismay, finds that she is drawn into the fray.
