It is said that in the deep woods right outside of Julia Springs, Georgia, lives a creature of myth and legend, the Chinaberry Man, so named due to the sweet, pungent scent remembered by those who have remotely come across him. Remotely because very few have lived to tell of a close encounter, except one. Gina McFarland has always been special: predicting plane crashes, having visions and dreams that come true-mostly the kind that don't have happy endings. Now she sees the dead. And, of all people, the creature has chosen to save her. In a matter of days, several strange events threaten the peace of this quiet hamlet, all of which culminate in hatred and revenge, Mother Nature's wrath, pure serendipity-and the love song of the Chinaberry Man.
