London – July 22nd, 1988

I decided to leave the matter and take no action at all about the recent fraud attempt on my bank account. From the description given of the person who attempted to withdraw money from my account, I know exactly who it was. He no longer lives at my previous address, nor indeed in London. All I know is that he moved back to the North-east of England, but I have no idea where. However, if he crosses my path ever again, then I will make it known that I know exactly what he tried to do to me. The bank has now closed the matter. Thank goodness the Bureau de Change kept hold of the bank card. The chequebook has been cancelled, and they…

Esmeralda Lawton is sick of the big city. “Ralda” was betrayed until trust became a theoretical concept. So it’s a dream come true when she buys an old estate, complete with historic cemetery. Okay, she isn’t excited about the cemetery, but she’s strangely drawn to the estate. Atonement, Tennessee, a quaint town, seems like the perfect place for her. However, her new life isn’t quiet.

The house is full of antiques. Some have extraordinary properties — a brass bed causes strange dreams, and a mirror shows the truth of who you are.

A mysterious neighbor secretly watches over the graveyard. There’s more to him than meets the eye, but what? Then there’s Gwydion, owner of Fae’s Flowers. She stubbornly resists her feelings for him.

Ralda suspects that people are drawn to Atonement to, well — atone. She wonders what sins led her there. However, her ancestress made the mistakes.

London – July 15th, 1988

I spent most of the night worrying about the meeting I had with Jake, as well as worrying about whether I should contact Douglas and share all the news of what’s happened to Jake. Of course, Jake may well have already told Douglas everything, but that got me worrying about what if he hasn’t? Talk about getting myself into a tizz.

To my surprise, I woke up this morning knowing exactly what I should do. It’s a strange thing to have to write, but I got all the answers from a dream I had last night that contained my Grandmother. When I saw her last Christmas, she was showing the first signs of a strange illness that my mother didn’t want to talk about…

London – July 7th, 1988

I managed to finish my late night at work yesterday by 7:15pm and was home to catch in on the celebrations of Marty’s birthday party. It went well, although Marcus wasn’t there. I went looking for him in the house and found him sat alone in his room. He told me that he was going to go to the party, but I wasn’t so sure. I literally had to drag him to come and join in the celebrations. Once he got there he seemed to relax and forget about his problems. I last saw him being chatted up by a rather lovely looking ‘Daddy.’ 

I got a surprise phone call this evening from Jamie. He told me he’s been keeping himself low and off…
