Teagan never guessed she holds a gate to eternity in her hand. It’s nothing but a dull black pebble. She explains away the friendly presence she becomes aware of from the day she brings it home from the beach. Then the presence becomes an all too real hunk who materialises in her sitting room. A powerful witch has a hold over Ronan and keeps dragging him back to the past. He has something she wants, and she’ll do anything to get it from him. Now all he and Teagan have to do is figure out what it is.
A cow, a cliff, magic, and a mischievous boy. What more incentive does one need to read this story? A young Ronan has gotten into more trouble than his father can remember and now this new trouble with the cow is the last straw. Teagans father has moved their family back to his homeland of Ireland and she must learn to fit in. Two people from two different timelines and one pebble that connects them. Can love withstand the tests of time?

Once there she finds a pebble on the beach and takes it home. The pebble seems to be full of magic and Teagan can feel the presence of it. One day that presence becomes the all to real Ronan. Ronan and Teagan become fast friends and later learn to love one another. Never knowing just when the witch will call Ronan back to his time the two must learn just what it is that she wants and how to give it to the witch.
