Things are hard enough for Serenity, taking a road trip in a last-ditch effort to spend some quality time with her wife Lillian.
The last thing she needs is an encounter with the supernatural, or even one with the enigmatic woman who lives further down the beach from where they're staying.
But Serenity keeps seeing mysterious lights in the sky, and she's sure they're watching Lillian. With no idea what they are, she's getting increasingly jumpy. Drawn into a maze of fear and deceit, Serenity needs to find her way out, fast, but in the end that means asking herself some hard questions.
She's not going to like the answers, nor the choices they force her to make.
Because sometimes, the consequences are irrevocable.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Solid writing, beautiful prose, compelling subject. Really hard to put down. This author is very talented.
This is a well-written, engaging book. The author knows how to set scenes, develop characters, and evoke emotions. I couldn't put it down. Serenity, the protagonist, tries to make sense out of the mysterious lights that seem to be stalking her wife Lillian. She searches for answers and has the feeling that her mother-in-law and the neighbor down the beach know more than they're telling her. Meanwhile, she struggles to take care of her dying wife , and grapples with thoughts and feelings that are all too common with overworked caregivers. At the end of the book - which is bittersweet - the reader is still left with questions, but they're the kinds of questions most people are left with when they encounter something strange: what is the purpose of the lights, why do they pick some people and not others, is there more to the manifestations than what's apparent? I look forward to reading more books by this author. She is a talented, wonderful writer.
