In the spirit of The Notebook and The Time Traveller’s Wife comes Robert Barclay’s haunting and romantic novel of passion, destiny, loss and an eternal love that will bring two people together across time.
A love beyond time and as deep as the sea…
His name is Garrett Richmond and he has always wanted to live by the ocean. So when the opportunity to buy and renovate the old house known as Seaside arrived, he leapt at the chance. Never mind that his friends and family thought he was crazy, he knew he could return this lonely mansion—worn by time, wind, and neglect—to its former beauty. But Seaside is more than just a project; it is a spot that had called to him his entire life.
And then one night he sees her…
Her name is Constance Elizabeth Canfield and she tells him Seaside has been her home for over 170 years. But Constance is no ghost; she claims that she has been somehow magically trapped between this life and the next. Garrett has trouble believing her outlandish story. And yet there is something about Constance that seems from another time.
Soon, this otherworldly woman and flesh-and-blood man share a closeness they cannot deny. But just as their passion begins to bloom, Constance’s presence starts mysteriously fading away. Is their love doomed? Or is it strong enough to transcend time and even death itself?
