When Ellen Summers was twenty-nine, her parents died in a terrible car accident on the way to their cabin near Asheville. On that same day, Ellen’s marriage ended. Five years later, Ellen’s parents appear in her dreams, urging her to return to the cabin. When Ellen responds to the dreams by taking her summer vacation at the cabin, she sets in motion a series of events. Love seems in offing, but Ellen has not let go of the hurt from her marriage, and the new man on the scene, wonderful though he is, has a connection to her parents’ deaths. Ellen decides to leave her job in the federal government to run her late father’s mountain business, but she finds trouble and betrayal in this sphere too. There are many characters and several subplots in this novel, but the love story moves to the satisfying conclusion that readers expect.
