On Christmas Eve, Keti Whitechapel finds a dog Prophetically, perhaps, she names the dog Marley. That night, the ghosts of her past appear in a dream–or is it a dream? Inexplicable things have been happening since she came home to Bounty, Nevada, a place she'd once vowed to leave forever. But Keti's no longer a poor miner's daughter. She's a successful businesswoman with only one regret: Martin Collins, her cherished childhood friend. The man she's never forgotten. The man she loved and lost. Strange apparitions are abroad this astonishing, magical night. Soon Keti finds herself reliving the joy of first love with Martin…and the anguish of a secret heartache. And suddenly her future becomes clear–if Keti can find the courage to give Martin the truest gift of all: the gift of her heart.
