As a protector of the ancient Danag people of the Philippines, Adrian knows the truth behind Dorothy's Filipino heritage. Dorothy is unaware of the danger she's in as she connects the dots behind her dad's disappearance, while Adrian scrambles to keep her safe. Enlightenment, Book One of The Bathala Proverbs Series, captures the push and pull between friendship and intimacy between two people on the verge of a great enlightenment about their ancestral past and their uncertain future.
