In the culture of Anne Rice and Elizabeth Kostova comes a hauntingly atmospheric story spanning numerous lifetimes—a love tale that includes alchemy, lust, and betrayal.
True love can final an eternity . . . yet immortality comes at a price.
On the dead night shift at a health facility in rural St. Andrew, Maine, Dr. Luke Findley is looking ahead to a quiet night. till a mysterious lady arrives in his ER, escorted by means of police—Lanore McIlvrae is a homicide suspect—and Luke is inexplicably interested in her. As Lanny tells him her tale, an impassioned account of affection and betrayal that transcends time and mortality, she alters his existence perpetually. . . . on the flip of the 19th century, whilst St. Andrew was once a Puritan cost, Lanny used to be ate up as a baby by means of her love for the son of the town’s founder, and he or she will do something to be with him endlessly. however the cost she can pay is steep—an immortal bond that chains her to a bad destiny for eternity.
