The Palace peace-treaty anniversary celebration threatens to crush Annette Staton under the memories of the war. Unfortunately, fleeing the Palace grounds only leads to a new flight from a stranger stalking her from the shadows.
From out of the quickly forming fog appears a peculiar roadhouse where one should not exist, sending her on a headlong trip into the past. To once again gaze upon the face of the man she loved and lost in his brave fight against a man driven insane by the years of bitter war.
But is this trip back in time a blessing or curse? Is she destined to die with him in one dark night of history?
A steampunk romance novelette in the Gateway Roadhouse Chronicles.
