As soon as Aurora Jackson arrives at Gabriella, the old Mississippi mansion where she will work as a manuscript typist, she feels the place is strangely familiar. Though her typing proceeds smoothly, Aurora's sense of déjà vu haunts her more and more. She is sure she has never been there before. But once again she has her old recurring dreams, which are somehow connected to the place—dreams about a horse bedecked with ﬂowers, tall Greek columns, a dangerous cat, and some vague terrifying event.
What eerie connection is there between these things and handsome, charismatic Alex Morgan, who has recommended her for the job? And why is Aurora increasingly certain someone wants to harm her?
