From acclaimed author Susan Wilson comes a powerful and moving story of the ties that bind families and lovers together -- and the dreams and passions that show how far those ties can reach.

After years of moving around with her footloose mother, fortune teller Madame Ruby, Sabine Heartwood settles in the quiet town of Moose River Junction. But when Danforth Smith returns to his hometown, reluctantly putting his career on hold to deal with family affairs, Sabine faces the dilemma of falling in love with a man anxious to leave the only place she has ever called home.

Things get more complicated when Ruby appears, finally ready to answer her daughter's lifelong questions about their mysterious past. Then Sabine "sees" a tragic event that occurred in Dan's family more than three hundred years ago, which is linked to a painful secret from which he's been unable to break free. Now, she must face the gift of "seeing" she's inherited but rejected -- for only then can she learn the truth of her own heart.
