From These Ashes chronicles the journey of two siblings looking for "home," while
searching for themselves, each other, their heritage and their destiny.
In a center for cult recovery in Phoenix, Arizona, 16-year-old Native American Naomi
West refuses to talk; instead she writes — about her life, about her brother, about
the prophecy, and about the fire that nearly destroyed it all.
Meanwhile, her half-white brother, Tim West, awakes alone in a forest without
memories of his past, only an unconscious urge to head west. It is on a Cascade
mountaintop where he once again gets too close to a fire, and what starts as a
horrifying nightmare wakens him to the truth of his past and a devastating choice
that cost him everything.
