Brae MacKenzie, a successful San Francisco painter, is a woman who seems to have it all, but a sense of loss and longing has followed her since childhood. Her artistic passion hasn't filled that void, and with the untimely death of her charismatic husband, the old pain comes back. Brae's father senses his daughter's torment. Before she embarks for an exhibit in England he hands her a family heirloom hidden away for years . . . a letter: -Since you are still among the living, your heart is t broken...follow the map, - Brae reads, -to Scotland.- The London exhibit, in its ultra-chic hollowness, prompts Brae into taking and advice of that bewildering letter. She hops a train for Glasgow. When the train goes through a tunnel and emerges in an infinite forest of Scotch pines, descendants of the ancient Caledonian forest, Brae suddenly feels something. This is her stop; she just kws it. She is met at the station by Damon, a stranger, or perhaps t. He becomes her own personal tour guide to the myths and history of a past she never knew--and to a romance she never dreamed of having. She had it all, beauty, love, wealth and fame, but her soul was empty. Something was missing.
