When the journey into the past is also the key to the future…
At the close of the nineteenth century, Vivian Alderdice is twenty-six, unmarried, and has no prospective suitors. Now the heiress of the Alderdice fortune, she has yet to fulfill her duty to her family and society by marrying well and producing heirs.
Her brother’s tragic plight the year before left the Alderdice family socially on shaky ground with Nob Hill’s blue bloods. The only way they can re-establish their social position is for Vivian to win the heart of Monte Leblanc, a wealthy Canadian bachelor looking to become a member of the exclusive Washington Street society to which the Alderdices belong.
But what a young man on the train to Waxwood tells Vivian about her grandmother shakes her to the core and takes her back seven years when she first began exploring the past. Vivian is torn between the future in the arms of Monte LeBlanc and the specters of the past determined to send her on a journey she is reluctant to take.
