Lauren Reay, the heroine of Lillian Carl's latest novel Blackness Tower, possesses Second Sight. Dreams of a strange tower have haunted her for years. Then her grandfather receives a calendar with a picture of that same tower. After her fiancé ends their engagement and her grandfather dies, she takes a vacation to Thurso, Scotland, the site of the tower. Visions intrude during waking hours and create more questions than they answer. Fearing others will consider her crazy, she says nothing about these. From official release/information:
Book Description: For years, Lauren Reay has experienced vivid dreams of a castle keep and a chapel overlooking the sea. Then she finds the real place: a restored 16th-century Blackness Tower on the coast of northern Scotland. Inside the tower, owned by handsome but reclusive Douglas Sutherland, she finds a 19th-century portrait of a 16th-century woman... who has Lauren's face. Blackness Tower holds strange powers and elemental presences that will change Lauren's life forever.
