In this time-slip romantic mystery, a captivating painting connects a young woman to her new artist beau—and to a Victorian diary full of haunting secrets. While visiting London's Tate Britain museum, Cori Keeling can't take her eyes off her favorite pre-Raphaelite painting: John Everett Millais's Ophelia. But it's Cori herself who catches the eye of gallery worker and aspiring artist Simon Daniels. He's immediately struck by Cori's resemblance to the red-haired beauty in the nineteenth-century masterwork. Though the painting draws Cori and Simon together, its Cori who becomes obsessed with its haunting subject. Her determination to learn more leads to a mysterious, century-old diary—one kept by a woman named Daisy who hid a shocking secret in its pages. The further Cori reads, the clearer it becomes that Daisy will stop at nothing to be heard—and that she's crying out for Cori to help her. As the ghosts of the past envelop Cori and Simon, they'll discover the truth about the girl in the painting, the woman in the diary—and Cori's own chilling connection to both of them.
