Struggling with guilt over her sister’s death and the stress of her  medical residency, Maya Radelis runs away to Scotland. A robin  seems to lead her to an antique shop, where she finds a century-  old engagement ring. But what is the ring’s history? She follows  the slim paper trail, wondering if it is only coincidence that her  dreams reveal the story of a Swiss woman physician who wore the  ring during World War I. In Paris she meets fellow New Yorker  David Fischer, a lawyer with family in Switzerland as well as  America. He helps Maya follow the memories stored in the ring as  they lead her around Europe. The attraction between David and  Maya grows, and when they discover a connection between the  ring and David’s family, they learn, bit by bit, more about the ring’s earlier owner. Will Maya’s own life have the same tragedy of lost love?
