A timeless energy encircles the world, drawing humanity into its grasp, eternally swirling, pulling souls together, tearing them apart in the eternal struggle of love, life and loss and amidst this cacophony there are thousands, who every day opt to open their computers hoping and believing that there is someone out there for them.
One of them is Mia, a fifty something author and self-confessed hermit whose garden is the bane of Mr Jenkins life. Juggling reality with fantasy and a lot of wine, there is no happy medium and after corrupting Mr Jenkins grandson, her reputation is a bit ragged around the edges, much like the leaves strewn across the only unkempt yard in the street, namely hers.
Calamitous, outrageous and with a flagrant disregard for the rules her one passion in life is Kip and for six years they have been involved...Over the internet.
More than aware of the pitfalls of online dating, Mia’s rather wry and cynical view of relationships from the safety of a computer screen should be enough to deter anyone, anyone except this stubborn, passionate woman who has had him in her life for so long, she yearns to know where the dream ends and the fairytale begins.
It has long been their desire to meet, yet they are both reticent to see it to fruition as too many ifs and maybes shape their path, that is until the opportunity arises.
What does destiny hold in store for two people, bound by a golden thread across the sands of time?
Will it be exquisite passion or agonising sorrow that fuels the tears for eternity?
