SAM BAIRD IS LOST. She isn’t sure if she’s experiencing a bout of amnesia or slipping into the depths of madness. She finds herself at a lake’s edge, beside a man she has never met but who seems strikingly familiar. Sam knows she has been in this exact moment—with this man, in this place, in this time—before. But this time is different.
She closes her eyes, but there is nothing but darkness.
When she opens them, she is in the apartment she shares with her roommate, Susan, and she’s supposed to move to New York City the following day.
Everything seems normal, but as she goes through the motions of packing up her life, she knows without question that she has been betrayed. But by whom? And how?
Sam pushes forward, ready to live the life for which she is destined, starting with this move. She must continue to follow the plan that has been meticulously laid out for her.
But why is it so hard?
Why can’t she stop thinking about the man from the lake? Will she be bound to him throughout eternity, seeing him constantly in dreams that present themselves through her artwork, or will she have the courage to choose a different path? Has she gone crazy or has he finally jumped from her visions into her reality?
In the end, it is the discovery she makes at the lake that will transform her life forever.
