When she offers to take him on 4 sensory-rich, cerebral journeys to improve his perception and emotional intelligence, he readily agrees, not sure what to expect. What he encounters is far more astounding than he could imagine.
With the power of suggestion and exotic beverages, Tracee guides him to pivotal eras in time where he assumes the personas of Arturo, Arthur, Kar, and RT. With each journey (both sensual and gut-wrenching), he learns about himself and the world around him—insights he applies to a camouflage project at work.
There’s no denying that Carter is attracted to his vision guide, and the feeling is mutual. Tracee delights in teasing him with innuendos and temptations, leaving him unsure about what is real and not. One thing is certain: his wife, Sarah, isn’t thrilled with his visits to the Green Light Foundation.
But the storyline changes from an innocent quest of self-discovery to something more ominous when Carter notices suspicious activities in the grand Victorian where he is treated. Convinced their operations are a front for something else, he starts to poke around. Dangerous. With the help of his son, an investigative reporter, a subplot is revealed.
Jill C. Baker grew up in a small town in New York state where, as a teenager, she wrote a weekly newspaper column and reviewed summer stock theater. She pursued her interest in media and writing at Boston University's College of Communication. Upon graduation, she moved to Southern California to work in the film industry. With a relocation to San Francisco and eventually back to Boston, she returned to her newspaper roots, serving as a copywriter and promotion manager for leading publishers such as Hearst and Harte-Hanks. Following a detour into the non-profit sector, she became Director of Marketing for a digital publishing provider in the magazine sector. Constantly facing deadlines and rigorous commutes, she often wondered what it would be like to simply disappear and do something else -- thus the motivation for the Sutherland Series. She and her husband live in New England where they've raised two sons and several cats. The rich historic setting provides valuable inspiration.
