Jennifer MacGregor was a troubled, young girl: wracked by the incomplete memories of the loss of her brother and father, a witness to the slow destruction of a mother shattered with grief, and friendless in a world that she was drifting away from. As she spiraled into depression and despair, and the paths before her grew fewer in number, she chose the long numbing sleep of suicide as her answer. In the darkness on a lonely hill in Esquimalt, British Columbia, as the world around her faded and she sank into the caress of death a wizened voice whispered in her ear, “Wake up, time tae come home.”
Brought back by a lonely ghille dubh named Aeonghus, Jennifer discovers a world where more than just humans came from the old country to live on Vancouver Island in the Pacific Northwest. Isolated from the faraway lands of their distant past, a handful of ancient creatures brood in the cold waters of the Salish Sea, the dark rain forests of the island, and the rotting historical buildings of old Victoria. These ancient travelers yearn for a world that has long disappeared and each is taken, in their own way, by the young girl named Jennifer as they remember a time when humans and the sidhe walked together.
