Both the real Audrey Parker and her memory doppleganger owned copies of Unstake My Heart. When Agent Howard dispatched Parker to Haven, Maine in June of 2010, he took her copy of the book. She and the real Audrey Parker later found that copy in an empty residence in Haven, after tracing a phone number Howard had used to call Police Chief Garland Wuornos. There was a note on the title page of the book reading "Happy B-day" along with the co-ordinates "44 2 65/68 785".[note 4]
The real Audrey Parker followed the co-ordinates to a small clearing on Kick'em Jenny Neck where she found and entered The Barn. The Barn erased her memories and she was found wandering around the woods by Duke Crocker who had taken her there.
In 2011, a copy of the novel was found by Jennifer Mason in the attic of a house formerly owned by her birth parents. The book was later revealed to be a source of unnatural energy which reacted to Jennifer's presence while in her possession. The book helped protect Mason from a Rougarou conjured by William. After Mason's and the book's encounter with the Rougarou, the book changed; the symbol of The Guard appeared glowing on the cover of the book, and message appeared on the title page, reading: The Child of Ruin must find the Heart of Haven and summon The Door. Only Mason could see the symbol and message; to everyone else—including the mysterious woman—the book appeared no different than before.

- ↑ The book's title is a pun on the title of the 1996 Toni Braxton song "Un-Break My Heart."
- ↑ Stewart Books is named after Haven art designer Jennifer Stewart. Stewart Books Ltd. is also the name of an Ontario bookstore. It's last day of business was August 31st 2013.
- ↑ According to the title page, Stewart Books Ltd. is located in Black Rock City, NV. Black Rock City is the name of a temporary encampment created in the Black Rock Desert each year for Burning Man. Rhonda, a creation of either the Barn or the mysterious woman once referenced the Burning Man festival telling Lexie that she she "lost a chunk" of her mind at Burning Man "last year".
- ↑ Parker's birthdate is an issue involving some confusion. Her HPD ID lists her birthdate as 12/7/81. Haven Parker celebrated her birthday before finding out that she had someone else's memories. She also quit the FBI and joined the HPD before finding this out, suggesting that Haven Parker's ID card has the real Audrey Parker's birthday. It is however also possible that Haven Parker had to create a new identity upon being found by the real Audrey Parker in order to stay under the FBI's radar. This could be an illusion to an actual birthdate and not just a reference to Parker discovering her true identity.
- ↑ These pages are first visible in "Fear and Loathing" and shown more fully in "When the Bough Breaks". The two pages do not seem to go together. The left page doesn't have spacing in-between paragraphs and indents paragraph beginnings while the right page has blank spaces in-between paragraphs but no indents. The story also seems to abruptly change.
- ↑ Manon, a diminutive of Marie is possibly from Manon Lescaut, a controversial short novel by French author Abbé Prévost, published (and banned) in 1731.
