h China. Guiding the UN official through Himalayan highlands is exactly the kind of work that Jeri seeks to exercise her skills and exorcise her conscience. With the help of a Sherpa and his nephew who know the back trails, Jeri hopes to avoid Chinese and Nepali border guards as well as British SAS forces who have targeted her as a terrorist. Just as the mountain trek begins, Jeri encounters Kelly Corcoran, a tourist from the United States. Kelly is aimlessly adrift in Nepal, emotionally desolated by the recent loss of her brother and his friends to AIDS. Both women recognize that a powerful connection links them, but while Kelly is willing to gamble her heart, Jeri struggles against involving anyone in her perilous and chaotic life. An uneasy compromise finds Kelly accompanying the small group at least to the Tibetan border. On this journey, Kelly will need every ounce of her courage and nerve to convince Jeri that the future only makes sense if they risk a life together.
