Summary
When A&E doctor Luke Findley turns up for his shift at his hospital job in the small town of St Andrews, Maine, he's expecting just another evening of minor injuries and domestic disputes. But instead, Lanore McIlvrae walks into his life - and changes it forever. For Lanore is a woman with a past. And as she begins to tell her story - a story of enduring love, a story of consummate betrayal, a story that defies time and transcends mortality, a story which begins in St Andrews at the beginning of the nineteenth century and cannot end until Lanny's demons are finally put to rest - Luke finds himself captivated. Lanny is not what she seems - her two hundred years on this earth have seen her seduced by both decadence and brutality - but through it all she has stayed true to the one true love of her life. Until now.
