Jude Alta has her music, her friends, and the love of smart, sexy Toni Dilano. Yet, there is an inexplicable void in her life.
She visits her dying friend Rosalie, whose disposition of her vast property is awaited by several concerned factions - including the inhabitants of nearby Circle Edge, a secluded and mysterious feminist community.
Eagerly welcomed by this community, Jude finds herself entraanced by the beauty of her surroundings, by the charismatic La and the Beguiling Amagyne. Soon she learns the secrets of the community's religious belief, and discovers that her arrival at Cricle Edge is no accident - it has been precisely foretold, along with the world-altering role which is her destiny.
Jude's relationship with Toni becomes threatened by Toni's certainty that Jude has been brainwashed by a cult. And Jude is assailed by her own doubts: what do La and Amagyne really want of her? And the rumors that her death is an essential part of the doctrine she has embraced - surely this is mere symbolic ritual... or is it?
