After a racist Andrea's car gets stuck in a small Southern town, she has nightmares of being raped and murdered as a Black woman. Only when she finds out this really occurred, does she realize she must find the killer before he kills her...again.
Andrea James visits her finance, Zachary Colton, in his small southern hometown. The environment and the people seem to trigger “hallucinations” which lead Andrea to suspect she may have lived a previous life in this town…as a black woman. If it’s true, Andrea will have to save her present life by solving her own past murder.
She knows she will have to return to the town where they began. But now Andrea knows the girl, Drewanna, whom she sees in her hallucinations was murdered and is very real.
Unfortunately, the murderer learns of her interest in the forty-year old case and will do anything to stop her quest for the truth, especially when she comes up with proof that’s still as incriminating as ever.
Andrea’s search not only threatens the killer but angers the still-racist townsfolk. Seeking information at the church in the black section of Station Hill, she is accosted by the KKK, held captive for an evening, terrorized, and warned off. She thinks she recognizes the voice of at least two of her tormentors.
In the town café with Zach, Andrea hallucinates so strongly that she momentarily becomes her past self. Her black accent and bizarre behavior in such a public place frightens and alienates her sole supporter—Zach. Now she has no choice but to return to the home of her past life.
Once the family verifies the information learned from her hallucinations, Andrea places everything together. The clues point to things she would rather not contemplate. Andrea is desperate to get one final piece of conclusive evidence.
She has already found the victim’s stained geography book and sent it to be examined by a criminalist friend at LA’s latent print department. Now she needs the blood-stained seatcover from an old truck reputedly shared by the sheriff, a neighbor, and Zach’s father when they were young men.
Getting the evidence proves difficult. She asks Washington, Drewanna’s once love, for help.
His help costs him his life.
Now Andrea is running for hers.
Andrea finds her “evidence” making her realize that her faulty deductions may yet cost her a second life as she again must fight Drewanna’s killer and expose the racist past.
Once again safe, Zach decides that the town of station Hills is just what Andrea has been saying it is. It’s no longer for him…no longer for them. They set out to have a new life together in Los Angeles.
