Long, James
Ferney knows who killed his wife, but without a body, there is no proof, and his search for her remains spans almost 60 years. He does finally find her, but she is alive and young again, and caught in a traffic jam of his making. Gally Martin and her husband, Mike, take a detour, and she discovers an old, crumbling house that calls out to her to save it. Somehow, this little house outside of Penselwood feels familiar and safe, and Gally's nightmares stop while she's there. Mike indulges Gally's every whim, but he objects to her odd friendship with Ferney, whose wife was also called Gally. As Ferney and Gally grow closer, bits and pieces of her past lives open up to her, and she recognizes the love they once shared. Ferney gently leads Gally to understand the full dimension of their connection, and guides her, as she grows larger with Mike's child, to a diabolical life-or-death decision.
