Crista Luedtke is a serial entrepreneur. She was born into the restaurant business but didn't follow her calling right away. She eventually left behind a corporate job in San Francisco to pursue her passion of opening a hotel in the sleepy vacation town of Guerneville, two hours north of the city. A restaurant, a market, and a bar soon followed, and the town began its transformation into a hip destination. Along the way, she weathered a flood that severely damaged her hotel, saw her marriage fall apart, and faced local resistance. A final project pushes her to the brink and changes her perspective on life, love and empire.
