A town full of folklore and the townspeople feel Annie is “blessed”. Can Ryan sort out the secrets and find the answer to his nightmares and dreams before the past crashes into his present and destroys his future? Ryan is an intriguing character.. He comes across as confused yet determined to end the mystery of these confusing dreams and scary nightmares he has been having. Annie is a woman who may have secrets of her own but she delivers softness to Ryan that had me rooting for these two to succeed in finding their answers fast. I love how intricate Mr. Davis has his characters, with faults of their own and yet they persevere to the end, getting their answers and finding a love worth fighting for.
