The records of accomplishments of real women from history who made significant contributions to their cultures but of whom the modern world is unaware have been kept by The Ahkoshek Society. This secret organization has aided humanity throughout its long history by providing assistance to individuals when confronted with situations they are unable to handle themselves; ones where they might otherwise have fallen into the hands of dark forces. The society’s prime directive is to assist in the growth of human consciousness. The members of this group have been called: angels, saints, seers and savants, however the newest member, Claire is neither immortal nor enlightened but a flesh and blood woman whose compassion for humanity is so great that the gift of time travel has been given to her as a means to help when help is needed. Like the women who call for aide, she too must constantly be on the lookout for the evil that always lies in wait for those who aspire to the heights. Part history, part mystery, part thriller, the book series chronicles the archetypal quest for truth and the meaning of life.
