Seemingly conjured from the pages of Monti Sikes’ novel,
sculptor Lloyd Pinay‘s bronze eagle poises for flight outside a
hotel in Sedona, AZ, the very setting of Eagle Rising. From
Monti’s creative force amplified by her own time in the powerful
landscape, we meet Rachael Barker, a photojournalist on
assignment in Sedona. Her editor wants coverage of a New Age
lecture series presented by an enigmatic novelist and lecturer.
Still mourning the death of her fiancÚ, Rachael is unprepared
for the impact of a chance meeting with handsome Derek Ryder,
who is also coping with heartache. Mystery and intrigue lead
Derek and Rachael into the desert, but a greater force shows
them the way forward.
