The Mountain Heralds Dawn

T. E. Waters
Canna has long been stagnating in her office job when a coworker passes away in an accident, naming her heir to a farmhouse on a small plot of land in the countryside. Confused and grieving, Canna turns in her resignation, packs all her belongings into a single suitcase, and boards a train leaving the city.

Despite the rustic, dead-end village she finds upon disembarking, Canna makes friends and begins to settle uneasily into her new life -- until she encounters the ailing guardian spirit of the nearby mountain.

Now, with the aid of a grumpy chef and a socially challenged doctor, Canna must begin to peel away the layers of secrets that have buried the village along with the magic of the mountain...
