In the mountains of Jackson County, NC, Sarranda continues to run her mill, renew and strengthen old and new acquaintances—especially her circle of strong, determined women with whom she continues her legacy of doggedly shepherding them to self-realization —and her discovery of the redemptive, healing power resulting from her one extraordinary and selfless gift of love.
