One reluctant psychic. A treasure hunt through the mists of time. Will she lay this ghost to rest?
She knows everyone in the quaint, seaside town of Penbrook, and everyone knows her—Madeline Hunter, the shy, quiet antique shop owner who whose idea of a hot date is snuggling up with a good book and her cat, Poe.
But she keeps one thing under her vintage hat—her ability to touch an object and connect with its history. Her new-age aunt says she should embrace her “gift”, but she’d rather pretend it doesn’t exist.
After buying an old box at an estate sale filled with rare items, she started having dreams—startlingly vivid dreams about Maria, a headstrong young Puritan whose “knowing” could get her branded as a witch, and whose forbidden love for a poor sailor turned notorious pirate, caused a scandal.
Together with Evan, an attractive history professor who tempts her to believe in love, she uncovers Maria’s story, helpless to stop its trajectory toward tragedy. She may not be able to change the course of history, but with Evan’s support, maybe she can lay the ghosts of the past to rest—including her own.
