A Love Beats Time Thriller about love, forgiveness and how reincarnation makes it all possible.

Emmeline McGuire vanished 30 years ago in a small upstate New York lake town, just as Clara Aiello was born in Paris. Now, Clara's a 30-year-old designer in NYC, married to gaming entrepreneur Seamus Dunne, age 45. Yes, he's older, but it's never mattered. The spark when they first met touched her to the core -- comfortable, easy, sexy. It's as if Clara has known Seamus forever. He is without a doubt her soul mate. Now, all Clara wants is to start a family. But they have not been lucky. Each time Clara gets pregnant, she miscarries. It's stress and extreme asthma, which started when they got pregnant the first time. Clara also gets asthma when she sleeps with Seamus. She's trapped in a vicious cycle. 


Devastated but ready to try again for a baby, Seamus takes Clara to his childhood hometown in upstate New York to relax, away from their busy life and the stress. It's the home he grew up in with his older brother, Derek, now 47. Their parents died in an accident when the brothers were in their teens. Derek is now a local priest and runs the parish school. The move is helpful. Clara relaxes, finally able to have sex without an asthma attack. She's distracted by the townsfolk: Father Derek; 20-year-old ex-junkie Billy working the convenience store; and a red-headed teenage girl who looks anxious and familiar. 


Clara becomes obsessed with the red-haired girl. At the local OB, Clara overhears her crying because she's pregnant and, in the woods, hears the girl fighting with her boyfriend. Afraid for the girl, Clara goes to the police and finds the only match is the "McGuire girl, Emmeline" who vanished 30 years ago. 


Clara finally gets pregnant again and the red-haired "ghost" appears in her bathroom. Clara is terrified she's coming undone and of losing her baby. She tries to uncover Emmeline's story, but what she finds makes her even more afraid, because all roads lead back to her husband, Seamus. Then the blind piano teacher mistakes Clara for Emmeline, recognizing the cadence of her footsteps, and Clara doesn't know what to think.

Will Clara uncover Emmeline's past in time to save her baby and marriage? Or is Seamus and her love for him what she should fear most?
