Chapter 1


Susan Andrews paced the marble floor of her office at Andrews Entertainment waiting for her brother Seth to arrive. He was late as usual. She sat down at her desk staring at the email message on the screen. She read the message aloud trying not to get tears in her eyes.

“Dear Susan,

I have read your email about coming home countless times trying to find the right words to explain to you what is going on with me. Remember when we were little and mom would read us fairy tales every night. You and I would pretend to be princesses staring out our bedroom window waiting for our knights to come rescue us. What if it wasn’t pretend? What if in another lifetime we were princesses? I know it sounds silly but the more I dream and the more I work on my project here I feel it could be reality.

You keep asking what caused me five years ago to just leave everything behind go to Ireland. You refuse to believe it was the dreams not my desire to not be part of the Andrews spotlight. I don’t know why I started having these dreams. They started the night of my 22nd birthday and have haunted me every night since. Susie, I can’t escape them even if I wanted to. You were there the first night I dreamed of my past love. You saw how upset I got because it felt amazingly real. I was in the garden of the castle with him. I could feel and touch him. I believe all these dreams and rebuilding the castle will help me find him again. I can feel him every night I know he is out there somewhere.

I know you don’t believe in past lives but I truly do believe in them. I can’t escape the feeling that something that happened back then is going to happen again now. If I don’t find the pieces and put the whole story together I will lose my true love again. Susie, I know this all sounds crazy. I wish you would come here like Mom and Seth did then you would understand everything like they do.

I miss you little sister very much. It breaks my heart I can’t come home right now. I know whatever your problems with Dad, you can handle them. Please think about coming here the next time you have a break there is so much we need to catch up on.

Love,

Sabrina.”

Susan sighed staring at the family photos on her desk wondering how her family had grown so far apart. They used to be so close everyone working to together to keep Andrews Entertainment a leader in the music and movie industry. Once Sabrina left the company the family started to fall apart. Susan looked away from the photos fighting the tears stinging her eyes. She was about to respond to the email when her office door opened.

“I’m sorry for being late. What was so important that you made me leave my golf game?” Seth sank down in a chair in front of her desk.

“This is,” Susan turned her laptop around for Seth to read the message. Seth scanned the words not surprised at all.

“What is so urgent about this? I told you she would turn you down,” Seth leaned back in the chair putting his feet on the edge of her desk.

“Damn it Seth, how can you be so calm,” Susan slammed the laptop closed. “Dad is slowly driving this company into the ground. Our movies are doing poorly. We haven’t had any movie break the top ten at the box office in over two years. Have you forgotten how poorly the music side of the company is doing? We have less artists signing with us every year. The artists we do have are itching to get out of their contracts. We no longer have any power to stop Dad’s madness, doesn’t that bother you?”

“Now your true colors show. You don’t care that Sabrina turned down your invitation to come home and be part of our family again. You’re upset because her 25% of the company isn’t coming home,” Seth stared at Susan his brown eyes wide with anger. “I do give a damn that our sister hasn’t been home for almost five years. I miss her like crazy and at least I have gone to to visit her unlike you.”

“I care about Sabrina. I can’t help that I don’t agree with this search that she has been on. I don’t have time to fly overseas,” Susan pouted crossing her arms.

“No wonder Sabrina doesn’t want to come home to this crazy family,” Seth started to leave as Susan ran around her desk grabbing his arm.

“Seth, please help me try to convince Sabrina to come home. We need her especially mom,” Susan stared into Seth’s dark brown eyes seeing he was softening.

“Fine, I will call her tonight,” Seth pushed Susan’s hand off his arm. “I’m only calling because I want her home and mom misses her. I could give a damn less if Sabrina helps us.”

“Seth once she sees what a mess Dad is making of our legacy. She will help I know it,” Susan smiled feeling good that she had convinced Seth to help bring back Sabrina.

“Susie, you keep forgetting Sabrina wants nothing to do with the company. She won’t even watch any of the movies or listen to any of the music we produce. To her it just doesn’t exist,” Seth slowly opened the door. “The only reason she keeps her share is because Dad made his lawyers make it impossible for her to sell.”

“Seth, just get her here and I will do the rest,” Susan snapped at him as she picked up the photo of Sabrina off her desk. “Does she still look the same?”

“Of course she does. She still looks like you. She could be your twin except for the hair color. Her hair is a darker blonde and longer that’s all,” Seth laughed hugging her playfully tugging the strands of her dark brown hair. “You have really lost touch in the five years. I think you should concentrate more on fixing your relationship with her than the entertainment business.”

“Seth, I just don’t understand her,” Susan slowly sat in the chair staring at her sister’s greenish blue eyes in the photo. “She gave up her whole life here to go search for something she will never find. Now she has started building a replica of the castle in Maine to continue her dreams here.”

“Susan, she believes she will find it,” Seth sighed grabbing the photo from Susan. “You might think she is nuts but I think she is incredible giving up her pampered life her to go to . She has no family there it’s just her and the team she has hired to restore the ruins of the castle. You should have gone with me last month to see the castle,” Seth was silent for a moment remembering walking about the lands overlooking the feeling comfortable like he was home. He spent hours riding around the countryside feeling like he had seen it all before.

“Don’t tell me you’re falling for that bullshit too like mom has,” Susan yelled breaking Seth from his thoughts. “Sabrina’s nonsense is all based on dreams.”

“I don’t have time to argue with you,” Seth kissed her cheek. “All I can say is Sabrina is on to something and I will never think she is crazy. I can’t wait to go back to .”

Susan watched Seth leave slamming the door behind him as she huffed for a minute hating to hear Seth defend Sabrina’s bizarre behavior. Susan always thought Sabrina and her would be close. Sabrina was only two years older but to Susan it felt like they were lifetimes apart since Sabrina left for . Susan smiled for a minute remembering all good times she had with Sabrina as they grew up together. They were not only sisters but the best of friends till too many nights of haunting dreams made Sabrina completely change leaving her sister and family behind on a quest to find the key that would hopefully lead Sabrina to her true love and her past.
