(From the publisher):
Kara O'Keefe had not realized, at the age of eight, how much her Grandda had left her at his passing. All she knew was what she had lost: Her beloved grandfather would no longer tell her magical tales of ancient Ireland and the Sidhe, the Fair Ones, beneath blanketing stars. He would no longer share with her nature's secrets or push her to find that brilliant swirling point deep inside that made her music almost magical. All she knew was...she had lost her greatest treasure.
At twenty-three, Kara O'Keefe will find that she was wrong as she is abruptly confronted with the wealth, and weight, of her fantastic and until then unrealized inheritance...and the threat of losing her father next.
Once destined for Julliard as a prodigy on the violin, Kara is now merely a very gifted music instructor--or as she sees herself. It is at Yesterday's Dreams, a pawnshop tucked away on a quiet New York back street, where Kara discovers her true legacy, her own inner power, and destiny and danger both begin to stalk her. Forced to give up Quicksilver, her cherished violin and only physical link with her long-gone Grandda, Kara's selfless sacrifice becomes the key to her destiny.
Confused by the sudden radical turn her life has taken and pursued by malevolent forces she does not understand, Kara O'Keefe must place her trust in a dead man she loved but never truly knew and the living myth that would teach her who she really was. Has she inherited the tenacious strength of her Celtic ancestors, or would she fall beneath the onslaught of uncompromising fate?
