Her life seems like a living dream until the dawn of the new millennium, when her loving husband unexpectedly walks out of her life and never looks back.For Greyson Campbell its all about his art. After one year in Mendocino, California to work with an artist friend of his grandfather and then hes off to conquer the art world.

He loves her from that first moment, loves her when he marries her and loves her still when he leaves her, divorces her and breaks her heart.One of the problems with growing up in a small town is being haunted by your past but for Alexis Owens it goes beyond that when her ex-husband returns twelve years after he left. She never got over him, and is as much in love with him as she had been at sixteen- Greyson seems determined to put himself in Alexis way, forcing her to remember what had been. Its in the remembering, though, that she starts to question the motives behind Greyson leaving. She remembers the disturbing incidents that plagued them throughout their marriage -- incidents that culminated in her near fatal car accident that claimed the life of their unborn child. Is it possible that Greyson left her not because he didnt love her but because he loved her so much that he was willing to walk out on their life together to protect her?Answering that question pulls them into a mystery, which is nine hundred years in the making. Can they solve it before the killer finishes what he started more than a decade before?
