Also available in paperback & audio

This story is set in my hometown, with all my favorite places as well as it’s centered around my childhood home…writing this story was like going back to Kincardine, Ontario and I loved every moment of it!

I hope you enjoy the read!


About the Book:

A spellbinding novel about an unspeakable secret that could destroy a family, from the New York Times bestselling author of Finding Emma.

Elle is a survivor. She’s managed to piece together a solid life from a childhood of broken memories and fairy tales her mom told her to explain away bad dreams. But weekly visits to her mother still fill Elle with a paralyzing fear she can’t explain. It’s just another of so many unanswered questions she grew up with in a family estranged by silence and secrets.

Elle’s world turns upside down when she receives a deathbed request from her grandfather, a man she was told had died years ago. Racked by grief, regrets, and a haunted conscience, he has a tale of his own to tell Elle: about her mother, an imaginary friend, and two strangers who came to the house one night and never left.

As Elle’s past unfolds, so does the truth―if she can believe it. She must face the reasons for her inexplicable dread. As dark as they are, Elle must listen―before her grandfather’s death buries the family’s secrets forever.
