Phoebe promised her dying Cherokee grandmother that she would hold onto the farm until she solved this riddle: "Take care of the land and the land will take care of you." Seven years later she is in a bitter fight to keep her former brother-in-law Jack from taking her home and farm near Oklahoma City. Just as she is about ready to give up, Alex (a sexy and mysterious Native American martial artist) offers his assistance. But who is Alex and what is his connection to Jack? Why does Jack fight so hard for land in which he had never before shown an interest? Why has her grandmother's ghost appeared? Instead of one riddle to solve, Phoebe now has a fistful of them.
