Funny, flawed, complex Allison Chamberlain gives us a distinctly personal tale, fraught with a struggle that is played out in the context of one of society’s darkest corners. In her forties, cut out of the considerable family fortune early on because of her ‘wild child’ status, Allison is still making a half-hearted attempt to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. One Sunday she receives a divine Nudge to buy a Harley and go where it takes her. On the seat of that Harley, riding into the world of down-and-out prostitutes who work on the fringes of charming St. Augustine, Florida, and dragging both the HOGs (that’s Harley Owners Group, for the uninitiated) and her small church group along with her she opens The Sacrament House and changes everyone’s lives – including her own and that of a homeless twelve-year-old boy. Allison's softer, intimate side is revealed in her romantic encounters along the way - will she fall in love with the guy who is part of her new world, find a lasting relationship with someone on her spiritual plane, or give in to undeniable attraction to the arch-enemy, with whom she shares ancient history?
