So she and Dawn, armed with a map and some leftover dinner, head off down a river and up a mountain to find the Wise Woman who can grant miracles.

''I look up at her but my voice lodges in my throat, and the song of the black-capped chickadee flies from my lips, because just past her blue eyes there is a set of brown ones. Wide and round with a nose that is sniffing for beans in
syrup, or maybe a kielbasa link. A black bear. Big and Hungry.''
