Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972599045, Paperback)

Paula, a blood and guts mystery-thriller author, has always scoffed at the mere idea of "true and ever lasting love." It doesn't exist. She is sure of it—until her elderly neighbor, Mrs. Morgan, gives her a set of diaries that have been gathering dust in the old woman's attic. The diaries tell the story of young Guinevere, a spoiled and naive girl who lived more than fifty years before Paula was ever born.

Paula becomes obsessed with the diaries, and with Guinevere's fledgling romance with the suave and debonair David—a man of mystery, who chooses to disclose as little about himself as possible to the woman he claims he fell in love with at first sight. David pays the ultimate price for his secrecy, however, when Guinevere marries another. John Travis though, is not who he appears to be. His gentlemanly manner disappears after the wedding, and in its stead emerges a sadistic, cruel side that his young wife has never seen before. Guinevere, and consequently Paula, suffers the man's abuse because it is "what a woman must do," but she will always long for the gentle and kind David, a man who vows never to give up hope that he and Guinevere will one day be together.
