She has lived through many ages of man, a solitary creature who yearns for a love lost long ago.

All is not as it seems when her desire to protect is aroused by a sense of great danger lurking for the woman.
The artist Michelangelo, creator of the sculpture David, signed only the Pieta and a white Carrera marble effigy of his best friend Raffaelo - a shapeshifter and a vampire. A victim of persecution, Raffaelo flees Florence with his wife and one true love, Berenice. In a desperate attempt to save Berenice from the Black Death, Raffaelo makes her a vampire too. Their life together sadly ends in tragedy in Golden Ears Provincial Park and Berenice is left alone to mourn in the forest.
Many years later Owen and Angela come to British Columbia. Angela finds herself irresistibly attracted to Berenice as they explore the forest and the Lower Falls. The stories of the protagonists unfold as time present and time past seem to coexist in the magical hemlock forest.
