Sedona, Arizona is the setting for this story of magic, the kind a man and a woman create after meeting in Boynton Canyon, a story that shows the difference between a romance and a love story, a love story that goes beyond the grave. Told against a backdrop of incredible beauty and a Sedona full moon, it is rich with “other world” mystery, a story about starting over, about never giving up. Kathleen McGuire, a writer who has never had the courage to allow anyone to see her “scribblings”, meets Tom Benda, who is searching for love, something he has never experienced. To her annoyance, Jake, her crusty and opinionated spirit guide, accompanies them, doling out words of wisdom and guidance. It is the beginning of a twelve-hour period that unwinds like the slow opening of a present, each scene drawing the reader closer to the gift inside, the contents of a box Kathleen’s mother bequeathed to her thirty years earlier, a box she has never opened. A shadow story weaves in and out about the parents of the two main characters, one that presents another dimension to the journey they are both on. She is also haunted by painful flashbacks from her childhood, coupled with memories of the final hours of her husband, Richard’s life. Tom becomes the instrument that not only helps Kathleen face the anguish of Richard’s death, but also unlocks her unremembered childhood trauma. After a night filled with magical experiences and dangerous adventures, Kathleen finds her courage. Tom urges her to go home and open the box. After a sensual several hours in Tom’s condo he tells her he loves her. Kathleen flees without telling him where she lives. Once home, Kathleen realizes she loves Tom and must find him again.
