Eve and baby Colleen are traveling to Ohio for the Christmas holidays to spend time with Eve's parents. After a few days in Ohio, they all plan to fly to Florida in Eve's father's private airplane. Patrick will meet them there after he completes exams for his forensic psychology degree. Nothing goes as planned. The day Patrick is to leave for Florida, he receives a shocking telephone call from one of Eve's cousins. Sobbing, she tells him a terrible tragedy has occurred. His life shattered, Patrick knows he must use the time travel lantern to return to the past in order to prevent the current tragedy. But once again, the time travel lantern has a mind of its own, and Patrick is hurled back to a time where he must confront a strange, unfamiliar world and learn why the lantern transported him there. When Patrick comes face-to-face with a mysterious, beautiful woman who looks and acts like Eve, and whose name is Eve, Patrick is haunted. He recalls the promise he and Eve had made to each other on Christmas Eve the previous year-no matter what happens, no matter what obstacles they must face, they will always find each other, help each other, and love each other for all time.
