Like her mother and grandmother, Laurel Scanlon has the gift of second sight. Her day-to-day existence has left her unfulfilled in life and in love, but every night she welcomes the retreat into her dreams and the recurring image of her true love.
When her grandmother dies, Laurel is drawn back to her ancestral home, Mimosa Grove, in the heart of Louisiana bayou country. Here, Laurel’s ways are revered—like her grandmother’s before her—and the community asks her to help find a missing four-year-old girl.
But she’s in for a shock when the missing girl’s uncle, Justin Bouvier, turns out to be the man from her dream. When she learns that Justin has been dreaming of her too, they both realize they are part of something special. Together they face threats both seen and unseen.
