A lost little girl. A painting from the past.
In 1867, Alice is rescued from the river by a paddle boat captain. Soon it is discovered she has a gift-she can see from the auras of those around her who will live and who will die. Cast out of her new family, she joins forces with Rosey and they run off to the goldfields to make their fortune. And vanish into the mists of time.
Present Day. Annie restores paintings and when she makes a discovery in an abandoned hotel, she is captivated by the faces of two long ago girls. Who were they? Annie sets out on a journey of her own, to uncover the truth about Alice and Rosey, and in the process discovers something of herself.
Mystery, adventure, a ghost, love and loss. The past entwines with the present in a way that will change the lives of all it touches.
