When Evelyn Morgan walks into Thorne & Son, a bookstore in the Cornish village of Clewes, she doesn\'t know that she\'s going to meet the love of her life. When Brendan Thorne sells her a medieval poem called The Book of the Green Knight, he doesn\'t know that it will shape his future. After that first meeting, they don’t see one another for years—and yet they never stop thinking about one another. It’s as if they’re the haunted lovers in the old book itself. Their lives unexpectedly come together again a decade later, when Evelyn abandons her law career to become an English professor, only to discover that Brendan is already a teacher at her new university. Their flame is rekindled, but a terrifying, nightmare-like vision sends Evelyn fleeing from the danger she senses within the man who has shadowed her dreams. This uniquely innovative novel is not only a romantic mystery for the ages, but a lovingly crafted piece of bookmaking art, its pages bound accordion-style so that it magically intertwines two complete stories front-to-back—Evelyn’s account of events, and Brendan’s, each perceiving their relationship from a very different place, each hiding secrets from the other. And no matter which you read first, the other will be a revelation…
