RELATIVE CONSEQUENCES tells the story of a retired teacher who is on a mission to find the truth about her past no matter what the cost.
Jessy Tate buries her husband on a chilly day in October 2005. That's when the nightmares begin again; but this time, the scenery is clear, and the fear is real. However, the puzzle pieces in her head don't make sense. These vivid flashbacks reflect what her mind has forgotten—a drama starring a childhood friend and a giant banyan tree. The dreams take her back to when streets were safe at night, when nearby beaches remained pristine, and when most folks ate their breakfast at the local diner. It was a time in history when little towns kept big secrets.
