Award-winning author Martina Boone weaves a magical tapestry of romance, family, and forgotten Irish history set on the beautiful coast where Bantry Bay meets the wild Atlantic.
After a disastrous relationship with her boss, Meg Cameron leaves her job with two bad options. Stay silent? Or speak up and ruin her career? When her mother drags her away to an archaeological dig on Ireland's heartbreakingly beautiful Dursey Island, she doesn't expect to become entangled in the lead archeologist's personal troubles. But Niall and his newly-orphaned nephew prove impossible to ignore.
Niall Sullivan has spent most of his life chasing the truth of what happened on Dursey in the Massacre of 1602. He's finally gotten the funding and permissions and started digging when he loses his twin sister and finds himself appointed guardian to his teenage nephew. For a grieving teenager looking for trouble, an abandoned village without internet, television, or even reliable cell phone service is a recipe for disaster. Niall is still reeling emotionally himself, and falling for Meg makes things even more complicated. But he can't seem to stay away.
Their developing relationship brings out both the best and the worst in Adam. And as danger comes from unexpected sources, all three must choose whether to cling to past tragedies or embrace the present and find a way to heal.
