Eloise has a perfect life, complete with a loving husband and two teen-aged children. So why can't she get past the feeling that something is missing...something she can't quite put her finger on? When Eloise discovers a link between her world and the past, everyone around her begins to think she's gone mad. But when the past becomes more real to her than the present, and she can't let go of the thought of Marion's arms around her, it somehow no longer matters what everyone else is thinking. Soon decisions must be made and they will not be easy. Will Eloise stay in today's world - full of modern convenience and everything she has ever known? Or will she leave this time forever and return to the past - a time when the world is on the brink of war. Either way, she could end up losing Marion forever.
