Throughout her childhood, Jessica is involuntarily thrust into shadowy subconscious memories of faces, events, emotions and voices from a Maine family in a century past. Feelings of being haunted by a woman from the 19th century plague Jessica until she comes face-to-face in a Georgia bookstore with what she realizes is her past life of Fanny Chamberlain, wife of Civil War general and Maine governor, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. Twenty years of dreams, visions, photographic evidence, eye-witness accounts and historical documentation culminate until Jessica can no longer deny the truth of who she was, despite her initial vehement refusal to accept it. As Jessica interweaves the events of her present life with her past, she pieces together the lessons, unresolved relationships and questions of self-acceptance to reach a higher understanding of herself, the power of love, the purpose of her life's journey and how to use her experiences to help others.
