River of Dreams
A friendship that catches fire, a conquistador's gold medallion, an act of atonement that goes horribly wrong, a rain forest trek they might not survive .... Gabrielle O'Hara, a bush pilot in Brazil, plans to enlist the aid of Nicolao Hamilton, her childhood friend, to help her return a conquistador's gold sunburst medallion their fathers had stolen from a shrine deep within the rain forest. Gabby believes that act cursed their lives, allowing happiness to slip by "an inch out of reach." She hopes that by returning the medallion, the curse will be reversed. Unfortunately, Nic doesn't believe in the curse and contends the trip would be suicide. With no alternative, Gabby shanghais Nic. Things go terribly wrong after they replace the medallion in its tiny shrine, as if the debt is still owing and fate is demanding interest. An accident on the river, a raging infection, an illegal mining operation, and relentless danger combine to thwart their safe return from their mission. With the rain forest's entire arsenal to contend with, their bond of friendship develops into a love that will bind them forever ... if they can survive long enough to experience it.
