From the Back Cover:

My Dearest Michael, In the top drawer of my armoire is a velvet pouch containing two heirlooms. The first is my locket. I would like you to return it to Betheltown for me -- to lay it by the hearth of the fireplace where I left my love so many years ago. I am certain that the roads will be grown over, but you will know the place....

After the death of his mother, Michael Keddington finds employment at the Arcadia nursing home where he befriends Esther, a reclusive but beautiful elderly woman who lives in mourning for her youth and lost love.

Michael faces his own challenges when he loses his greatest love, Faye. When Michael is falsely accused of abusing one of the Arcadia's residents, he learns important lessons about faith and forgiveness from Esther -- and her gift to him of a locket, once symbolic of one person's missed opportunities, becomes another's second chance.
