History repeating itself is usually a joke people make to explain things that seem to happen over and over again. But what if it is more than that?

Amelia Fitzgerald is about to find out that the saying is more than what she ever thought it was.

After a tragic accident claimed the lives of her parents Amelia started having the most vivid dreams. The kind where the tears are very real, leaving Amelia convinced that her dreams are more than dreams. When she meets Liam it all seems to come in a bit of truth and even more questions.

She learns that everyone’s fate is set, but that sometimes it gets twisted. Of course with the truth comes a price and there are those who want to make sure that the truth doesn’t get out.
