When she becomes obsessed with haunting dreams of two young girls in seventeenth-century Scotland, Maggie wonders if it’s all a case of synchronicity, genetic memory, or reincarnation.
Her buried emotions begin to surface as the lines of reality and dreams blur together. Ultimately, she discovers how lives can be intertwined beyond the veil of time and space.

Filled with intrigue and inspiration, this novel presents a unique look at an ordinary woman’s desperate attempt to find meaning and reason in her life.

This is a brilliant writing to be read slowly and savored, and then read again, each time discovering a new pearl. Karen’s creatively developed characters become like friends and family. You feel deeply all the things that they are feeling. Also, one of my favorite things in a book is the element of the unexpected and unpredicted. This writing has all that and more.


I expected this to be a good read just not the GREAT read it turned out to be. Karen’s unique way of writing kept me practically speed reading the whole way through and the time just flew by. I loved that I could relate to the main character but not predict what would happen next. Ran the whole spectrum of emotions and in the end felt completely satisfied but wanting to be able to read the sequel immediately. Hurry Karen, I love your writing…
