For the Love of Strangers puts a new spin on the classic hero-savior myth as 16-year-old Darya realizes that she is descended from a line of Russian deer-women who reincarnate over eons. Whitetail deer follow her. She talks to them, meets them in the most unlikely places, unaware that she is one of them. From Neolithic caves to the safety of a modern-day women’s shelter, Darya’s cycle of rebirths sweep her closer to her destiny: to save a wild species from extermination.
