Description

“A skilled and graceful storyteller, Whitney provides a romantic backdrop for the novel in her descriptions of Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula.” Publishers Weekly

Recovering from the death of her son and the end of her marriage, Kelsey Stewart goes to stay with her aunt at her seaside inn in Carmel, California, looking only for retreat. But a local emergency unexpectedly brings Kelsey’s troubled heart back to life again.

When a young boy falls from one of the sea cliffs, Kelsey, a therapist specializing in brain-damaged children, is recruited to help rehabilitate him. Kelsey finds herself developing feelings for the boy as well as for his mysterious father. But as her involvement with Jody and his family deepens, an astonishing mystery unfolds, leading Kelsey to suspect that the boy’s anguished condition is not solely due to his accident. It is a mystery that hints at the occult, a mystery of dangerous evil that could ultimately free Kelsey to love with all her heart—or else destroy her forever.
