In the early nineteenth century in Oxfordshire, England, Caroline Markham matures into a young woman under the maternal wing of her wealthy godmother. Yet even though she is cherished, indulged, and protected, Caroline is haunted by the promise she made to her mother on her deathbed-to avenge her father's betrayers and marry not for love, but for affluence, station, and the restoration of her family name. Secretly oppressed by the grim legacy of her father's failed ambitions and a strange, recurring dream of an abandoned garden, Caroline embarks on a mysterious search for the truth that leads her to an ancient desert tomb. But as she blindly follows her intuition and a beckoning voice, she soon learns that her dreams are unwittingly shared by Sir Edward Reynolds, rakish adventurer who has but one goal-to steal her heart. As Edward zealously pursues Caroline and pleads with her to be his wife, she knows he is not at all the sort of gentleman her parents would have wanted for her. As soon as Caroline rebuffs Edward's pursuits, she sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy not only her destiny, but the lives of all who adore her.

Sherre Costello is a self-confessed late bloomer who grew up reading everything she could get her hands on. At an early age she became fascinated by myths, legends and traditional tales recounting visionary experiences and journeys in the spiritual world, both of a haunting and healing nature. In later years she became an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, romance and adventure stories of all sorts. Like many people interested in the supernatural, she has long been intrigued by dreams and the messages they contain. The recurring dream she has woven through her first historical romance, Revenant, is an evolving psychic experience shared by the dreaming lovers, a magic thread which draws them inexorably closer as its signs and omens are revealed in the tangled outward events of their separate lives. Sherre is a fan of all the Inklings; she learned a great deal from mystery writer Dorothy Sayers and her friend Charles Williams. She has a Bachelor’s degree in French and a Master’s in English. She lives in Northern California.
