Meredith finds herself trapped in a labyrinth of caves below the Carlsbad Caverns when she is propelled downward during an earthquake while visiting with some friends. She is separated from those with her in the Great Room, and lands on a small ledge in complete darkness. To her relief she finds there is someone else with her, a mysterious male who manages to extricate her from her perilous position to a chamber below. Together, they must find a way out or perish.

Title: Golden-Rod
Author: Jeannine D. Van Eperen
 
Excerpt
A long slender stalactite drew her attention. It hung down thin and graceful, alone away from other groupings. ItÂ’s like me, she thought. Alone. She knew she wasnÂ’t supposed to touch it, but was compelled to feel its texture. For a moment she caressed the smooth stone, feeling relaxed, drained of the sorrow of the parentsÂ’ untimely death. Meredith stood immobile, an uncoiled wire, a rag doll, as her fingers drew relief from the cool stalactite, her mind, for once, a perfect unthinking blank, sorrowful thoughts scurried away, leaving an inner peace. Beneath her feet, ground began to shake. The cavern was suddenly filled with frightened, flying, screaming brown bats as a loud crash, and then a rumble filled the cave. Rubble fell from the ceiling, the ground opened and Meredith felt herself falling through space. She screamed.
