Fulfilling a dream, Lily O’Malley moves to Paris, France, a place she has always wanted to live. After a busy year of settling in, a vacation is much needed. She makes up her mind to visit her college roommate who lives in Warsaw, Poland.

She has always denied being clairvoyant. However, riding on the night train from Paris to Warsaw, she experiences an unexplained vision—her first in many years. She is drawn into the dark past of another time—the era the Nazis occupied Poland during World War II.

Facing frightening situations, she meets a handsome stranger, French Diplomat, Pierre Girard, who fights with and trains Polish resistance workers. She wants to become involved with the effort to help rescue the Jews and others the Nazis consider to be undesirable. Pierre flies Lily to London, England to train to be anything needed to defeat the German enemy.

As a witness to the ravaged landscape, treachery and violence of World War II and the 1940s in Poland, she travels from the Baltic Sea to the Tatra Mountains with the Partisans. Lily knows she will always remember the people she worked to save from the concentration camps and death and the friends she made. She refuses to concentrate on the bad memories competing for the space the good ones are trying to occupy.

Fifteen years ago a tragic mistake sent Violet O’Malley running from her home, a weathered Victorian mansion in Bar Harbor, Maine, built just before the Civil war, to a new life in New York City.

When she receives a plea from her mother to return home for the annual Memorial Day celebration, she agrees, with trepidation, to put aside her differences and visit for the holiday.

At a young age, she discovered she was clairvoyant. Not to be an embarrassment to her family, she learned to keep her apparitions a secret. On her visit, she uncovers a diary written by the daughter of the original owner of the house and the ghosts become real again.

During a search for gold, rumored to be hidden on the grounds of her home by Confederate soldiers as they escaped through Maine to Canada, Violet barely escapes from kidnappers and becomes enmeshed in cold-blooded murder.

She enlists the help of Jeremy Buchanan, the man who disappointed her years ago. Rekindling their love is the furthest thing from her mind, when Jeremy declares his desire for her to let go of the past and begin again. As he helps her expose the secrets of both the living and the dead, will Violet be able to deny the reawaking of the passion she felt so many years ago?
