Reading an ordinary diary provides an extraordinary adventure.
Cassie McAllister miraculously survived an attack by her ex-husband. But her breaking point comes when she starts hearing a voice in her head saying, “Save her.” She retreats to an old farmhouse in Idaho she inherited upon her mother’s death, with plans to fix the place up and fix herself in the process. Hidden in the attic, she finds a century-old diary. Upon reading from the charmed book, she’s thrust back in time to 1890, into the life of Annie McDonald.
Trapped in Annie’s life, Cassie meets Carrington Chambers, a local farmer with a murderous reputation. Annie is smitten, but Cassie is wary of his dark nature—and with good reason. She’s unaware that Annie mysteriously dies soon after the couple wed.
Back in the attic, Cassie is shocked when she encounters Carrington again—only now he’s a ghost. He seeks revenge and redemption and wants Cassie’s help getting both or risk eternity stuck in limbo. Cassie’s affection for Carrington grows, in two different centuries, as she gets dangerously close to deadly secrets about Annie’s demise.
Will she prevail and free the man she can never truly have? Or will fate intervene and claim yet another victim?
