From the earliest days of her childhood in Santa Ynez, California, twenty-six-year-old Livvi Gray has been haunted by a recurring nightmare: the terrifying image of a stranger, an eerily beautiful woman in a silver dress. And now, Livvi’s nightmare is about to become reality. On an early morning walk, while making one of the most important decisions she will ever make about loving and loyalty and family, Livvi comes face-to-face with the woman from her dream. This chilling encounter not only alters Livvi’s future, it changes much of what she thinks she knows about her past. The Book of Someday tells Livvi’s story in parallel with the stories of a brilliant Boston photographer named Micah and a suburban Long Island wife and mother named AnnaLee. Like Livvi, these two women are swiftly moving toward events that will be the ultimate turning points in their lives. One event leads to a stunning act of heroism; and the other leads to a moment of weakness, regretted for a lifetime. It is in this flashpoint, where the three stories intersect, that the riddle of Livvi’s nightmare is unlocked—and shocking secrets are exposed. Secrets about the strange ways in which people protect, and sometimes betray, the ones they love.
