Emma is almost 40 and she has it all. Since she can remember herself she has always been very rich and spoiled. Now, on top of the fat bank account Emma has a successful husband, rich friends, big house and two dogs.

But there is something else… She also has nightmares visiting her often. In fact, it's the same nightmare every night. Emma dreams that she is standing wearing a nightgown in front of a big French window. The floor is cold underneath her bare feet. She puts her palms on the cold glass and looks outside. There is a huge oak tree straight ahead in the yard. Its branches with colorful autumn leaves shiver with the wind. The sound they make seem like a low melancholic whisper. As if trying to listen she brings her face closer and her nose meets the cool glass. In just few seconds the glass around her lips and underneath her nose covers with steam. She does not move.

She closes her eyes and a lonely tear slides down her cheek. Then she opens her eyes and looks back at the old oak tree. There is someone standing next to it now. It’s a girl of 3 looking exactly as she did when she was her age. At some point she even thinks it’s her, although she knows it’s not. There is no proof but she knows for sure. She just knows… Emma can’t find any explanation. As soon as she accepts it to be part of her life different unexpected events follow one another. As a result Emma find out a secret, which turns her life upside down and finally explains her nightmare. The book is about life, female friendship, secrets and hope. It covers different female fates and Emma’s personal transformation journey.
