OWL WOMAN Vicki wakes out of a dream just as the phone rings. She answers it to hear her old nanny tell her that Jacob, her archaeologist father, has been killed just as she saw in her dream. She goes home to find out what has happened and old things begin to surface. And the village is in turmoil because Sylvie, her father's mistress, has capped the spring and the village is dying for lack of water. Vicki meets Merle again, her ex-lover from whom she ran away, and old feelings begin to stir. She learns Jacob had found the village's famous 4000-year-old gold cup that he'd been searching obsessively for all his life.
