Love dies with Abby’s father. The return of her mother after a twelve-year absence brings more grief. And the move to a dilapidated house along the Youghiogheny River bike trail is an exile.
When blond, blue-eyed Jack rides into Abby’s life, it’s like the sun has been restored to her world. Bit by bit, hints of a darker side to his personality appear. She struggles to deny them, even while her best friend, Morton, grows increasingly mistrustful of the handsome stranger.
Abby uncovers a mystery from the Civil War era in a nearby cemetery, which brings her only moments of peace. Cool caresses and the whispered call, “Abigail…“ send her digging into the past.
But as Jack’s motives become ever more unclear, the love Abby hoped for seems impossible. And leads her to a life or death choice. Will love be her salvation … or her demise?
Abby pondered the dilemma. As much as she had wanted Jack to like her, at the end of the day it had just been a stupid fantasy. Things had been getting better with Lisa. Shared meals, laughing at the same jokes, even working together to make Bikers’ Rest a success had jump-started the bonding process. Probably all mothers and daughters fought sometimes, but lately the bitterness of Lisa’s absence had faded. Now that relationship had been lost forever.
Sudden longing filled her heart. Not for Jack, Lisa, or even her father. She yearned for Silas to be with her all the time. Strange that only with him did she feel whole. What did that mean? It meant that in some indescribable way, she had fallen in love with a ghost. What she felt for him was more real than any emotion she’d ever experienced.
Abby caught a whiff of campfire and coffee. She turned, expectation making her heart pound. “Silas!”
He stood at the end of her bed. The translucence had faded, his appearance as a living man fully restored. “Here I am.”
“How did you know … that I wanted you?” Abby discarded all thoughts of this being anything other than what it was to her: someone she loved, here when needed.
Silas smiled. “Me and you, we share one heart. Time don’t mean nothing in eternity. I just been waiting to love you.”
