Growing up, Cassandra (Cassy) Huidobro hungered for answers to spiritual questions she simply couldn’t get. It was either taboo to talk about religion, or people couldn’t touch the topic without judging different beliefs. She would ask herself: 

  • Is there really one absolute religion? 

  • Do we have a path set up before we come to Earth? 

  • Should we always follow our intuition? 

  • If so, why have free will?

These and other questions led her to a quest of self-discovery, purpose and belonging. Through personal stories, Cassy gets honest with readers and shares her journey of spirituality, lost love, reflection and finding peace. In this book, you’ll find solidarity in the search for finding answers, if you’ve ever felt the same way.


Daniel Scott Westby is the author of Goblin Winter and Wind of Chains, leading into the Fimbulvetr series— a trilogy concerning the rise and fall of the future. Drawing inspiration from epic poetry and science fiction, his novels combine dark influences to create a fantastic futuristic setting to tell the tale of fallen heroes and unrequited love, all leading to an apocalyptic climax in the plains and hills of the America west. He teaches ethical rhetoric through the critical reading of classic literature in Denver and is finishing the concluding chapters of the next novel in the Fimbulvetr series— Lie By the Sword.
