Morgan Whittier belongs to a family of remarkable women. A grandmother who scaled mountain peaks. A mother who flew over the ground on horseback. And a captivating, brilliant sister, Phoenix, who studies time. Morgan has always been content with her own perceived mediocrity as a math teacher who clings to logic and security over adventure and passion. She has always been satisfied with the singularity in which she loves her sister, a love that has barred any other intimacy. Her contentment, however, is destroyed when Phoenix disappears. In the search for her sister, Morgan journeys from her home in New England to the landscapes of California's Great Central Valley and Sierra Nevada. In an old schoolhouse, where the lives of generations of Whittiers intersect, Morgan is drawn into her sister's world. She soon uncovers startling revelations that plunges her deeper into the mystery and propels her into a journey of self-discovery.Through the moving story of Morgan and Phoenix, The Idea of Forever explores the bonds of sisterhood, and the nature of love.
