A woman discovers an impossible connection that transcends time and place in this stirring, unforgettable novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Thief.

"A splendid mix of time travel, romantic yearning, and moving on after grief."--Publishers Weekly

Isabel Griffin has done her best to move on since her boyfriend, Max Adair, vanished without a trace eight years ago, leaving her heartbroken--and pregnant. Eerily enough, this isn't the first time someone Isabel loves has gone missing. When she was sixteen, her mother disappeared, and her father became obsessed with finding his long-lost wife--at the expense of parenting Isabel.

Determined not to repeat her father's mistakes, Isabel works hard to become a respected archaeologist and a loving mother to her daughter, Finn, a little girl with very unusual abilities. But while Isabel is on a dig in Barbados, she receives a disturbing phone call. The hauntingly familiar voice on the other end speaks just four words--"Isabel. Keep her safe."--before they're disconnected.

Isabel tries to convince herself that the caller can't possibly be Max. But what if it is, and Finn is in danger? As one mysterious event after another occurs, she can't shake the feeling that, despite what everyone else believes, Finn's father is alive--and he's desperately trying to reach her.

Advance praise for The Dream Keeper's Daughter

"Moving effortlessly between modern-day South Carolina and nineteenth-century Barbados, Emily Colin takes her readers on a passionate and sweeping tale of a woman haunted by a loss she can't explain, and a future she can't yet choose. Lavishly plotted and expertly paced, with characters as richly drawn as their settings, The Dream Keeper's Daughter explores what it means to follow our hearts--even at the risk of losing what we hold most dear. I was captured from the first page and, like Colin's lovers who are fighting time and space to be reunited, came up for air only after the remarkable journey was complete."--Erika Marks, author of The Last Treasure

"In The Dream Keeper's Daughter, Emily Colin thins out the line between present and past, dream and reality, and allows you to cross over into a haunting world that will make your heart race, weep, and celebrate things that are lost and found. This story immerses you in a time that should not be forgotten and explores the infinite rippling effect of decisions, guilt, accountability, and love."--Samantha Sotto, author of Love and Gravity
