Janice Gaither spends her life remembering the days of love she lost long ago. Unhappy from the lack of devotion from her husband, she can only think of one man, Travis Jordan, dead and buried.
In a world where she is forced to imagine her own happiness from an old letter and worn photograph, she realizes happiness is something fabricated from control: Something her life has always lacked.
When control is suddenly handed to her like a gift from a ghost, she finds herself in a haunting struggle over a younger man who reminds her in many ways of Travis Jordan.
As she starts over on the North Carolina lake she used to call home, she inadvertently brings together a group of people who grow to become genuine family. But they will soon learn the true essence behind the mysteries of Lake Matasuttun that begin to surface. Little do they know how the secret of the lake and a two-hundred-year-old love affair has and will impact their lives.
To Yesterday is the story of a woman letting go of her past and finding a new beginning to a destiny untold, until now.
