Meet two memorable characters in a love journey linked to an ancient druid power. Mary Kelley is from Minnesota, an IT director, but she has unusual dreams.

Her visions of a handsome man finally become a reality when she meets Sean Calhoun, who rekindles her dormant psychic powers.
The two are pulled towards each other in a magnetic kind of way. Mary doesn’t know that Sean has his dark past and that he’s vowed a long time ago to never fall in love again because of a tragedy in an affair in his youth.
