(From the publisher):
Joanna Reed, a professor, wife, and mother, is also a survivor. She hones her body exploring deep, jagged caves under the earth, and clears her mind creating the poetry, for which she is acclaimed. Now the refuge from which she draws her strength and inspiration has just turned deadly.
On her family's summer retreat to Asconsett Island, a peaceful Massachusetts coastal town, Joanna loses her husband and her father in quick succession to accidents that defy explanation. Unable to convince the authorities of her suspicions of murder and distraught over the deaths, Joanna lets down her guard. The young woman who comes into her life seems loyal and kind, and her friendship slowly brings Joanna back from the abyss. But it is no mere accident that this girl has appeared, and Joanna is by no means out of danger.
