No one seems to recognize the young man caught in the background of some old photos that Annie found in the attic of Grey Gables. But Mary Beth, owner of A Stitch in Time, turns strangely pale when Annie shows the photos at the Hook and Needle Club meeting. Annie is determined to find out who this stranger is and what became of him. His young, sad face haunts her and she feels compelled to unearth his story.
 
When a handsome visitor to Stony Point, Maine, introduces himself to Annie as an antiques “expert,” she is charmed and welcomes his attention. It’s an antidote for the loneliness she has endured as a young widow. Then disturbing information gleaned from old newspapers and a seemingly unrelated hit-and-run accident injuring her handyman’s daughter, Emily, seem to bring danger closer and closer to Annie as she pursues the truth about the young man in the photos. 
 In this many-layered mystery, where things aren’t always as they seem, Annie is resolute and loving, honest and kind. She is buoyed by the loyalty of her good friend and neighbor, Alice MacFarlane, and the respect and support of her Hook and Needle Club friends and the kindly mayor, Ian Butler. 

Journey with Annie through the labyrinth of clues as she solves her mystery and brings 
 closure to past events in the history of Stony Point, Maine.

The Characters

Annie has lived in Brookfield, Texas, for the last 28 years but grew up in Stony Point, Maine. At 49, she is still attractive with her gray-blond hair, but since her husband, Wayne, died of a heart attack last year, her green eyes have lost their sparkle. She doesn't know quite how she fits into this new, but lonely, phase of her life. So she contents herself with her crochet projects and her garden. Still, however, her life lacks focus and meaning.

A childhood friend of Annie's, Alice has lived in Stony Point all her life. She is divorced and lives next door to Grey Gables in the small but cozy carriage house that used to be the gatekeeper's house for the mansion on the hill. Annie is delighted to reconnect with her long-lost friend.

Mary Beth is the owner of the local yarn shop, A Stitch in Time, in the center of town. She has lived in Stony Point her whole life, has never been married and seems to be the self-appointed town mother. It's nearly impossible to keep a secret around her since she knows absolutely everything going on in town.

Annie's daughter LeeAnn lives in Dallas, Texas and has an independent nature. She and her husband, Herb, have 5-year-old twins, John and Joanna. LeeAnn is worried about her mother's well-being but keeps in touch on a regular basis.
