Overview

Broken in body and spirit, twelve-year-old Luke lies in the mud at the bayou's edge after being brutally beaten and thrown from a speeding train. Guided by a mysterious unseen force, nine-year-old Marie stumbles upon his near lifeless body-their souls bonding as he awakens and stares into her crystal blue eyes. Marie and her parents nurse him back to health at their bayou home, deep in the Louisiana marsh. There is one problem-he has lost his memory. Marie treats him as 'brother', yet deep inside, her love grows. However, all is not clear in the path to true love as Luke recovers his memory, moves away and grows to manhood, marrying another who wants him only for the act of procreation. Will Marie recover from the shock of losing her secret love as she retaliates by marrying the first man who shows an interest in her? Will Luke, searching for the difference between sex for lust and sex for love survive as his marriage crashes? Will the bonds Marie and Luke developed during childhood bring them together? What is this mysterious force that intervenes at each crises point in their lives?
