Book Two in the MEMORIA Series

"Not your typical study abroad program ..."

Grad students Violet and Tom return to Scotland and Wildewood Hall for a quiet weekend away until the laird, Alistair Edward Craig, upends their reality once more. Suddenly their vacation takes a dangerous turn, and the pair find themselves entangled with a string of extraordinary events threading throughout Europe. Violet and Tom travel together to Venice and Paris then on to London and further afield as they endeavor to right Craig's wrongs on a historic scale. It's not the Continent they're concerned about. It's the Universe.

Praise for MEMORIA:

"... a charming protagonist with a wry sense of humor ... Violet's relationship with Tom is flawlessly detailed, building on small moments ... the mystery doesn't let up ... Multiple genres come together to form a rewarding, incomparable novel." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
