By the use of divination and magic, some ties can never be severed.
In the beginning, by the light of the Full Moon, Frankie connects with Candice's energy through dream time and witnesses her involvement in a terrifying act of violence. After receiving information from Sandra that their childhood friend is missing, they pack their bags and head to the inner city to find her.
Frankie, afraid for her own safety, has a chance encounter with a local named Calvin who is plugged into what's happening. Using his workable ideas—as well as Frankie and Sandra consulting tarot, ordinary playing cards, astrology, and spell-casting—they set forth to free Candice from the dangerous situation she is in.

Sandra sat on the edge of the bed, and then stood. She retrieved her tarot deck; Frankie, her playing cards. Each held their deck face down in one hand and covered with their other hand. The two paused to become calm and centered. While they shuffled their deck in unison they spoke, “Spirit Guide, reveal to me, am I carrying out the right action in finding Candice? Please reveal to me that which will be, one…two…three…”
Calvin relaxed on the couch. He watched them, listened as he attempted to take in what they were doing. Suddenly, the ceiling light blinked on, then off. He felt the room chill. He looked upward and could see an orb shine in a rich glow float through the window. He didn’t know what to think. He just stared at it, and said not a word. He observed the orb brilliant and illuminating quietly with slow glide of movements move through the room and then descend. He became alert to the sparkles of white and gold orb presence transform. He could barely make out the faint image of an older woman. Her aged hair in a tight bun dressed in a long billowing cotton coat float between Sandra and Frankie. He watched in disbelief as she transformed back into a barely there visible orb.
For me severed ties is about 2 girls who are willing to step outside their comfort zone to save their friend from a tragedy ,that Frankie sees in her dream state. The girls embark on a mission and become women .Witnessing the horrors of the world. Where they find Candice, who is lost in drugs and needs to be found. This book defiantly has a great meaning. No matter how far, lost, kidnapped, Dead or alive no bond between friends is broken. I really enjoyed severed ties it was a good read. It made me sad at the end, all the work and sacrifice for that ending .made me yell and say really!!! Really LOL .I understand why, and loved the ending. The only issue I had was there was a couple run on sentences when they leave the house other then that a good read.
