With her marriage foundering after the death of her young daughter, photographer Clare Porterfield jumps at the chance to direct an exhibition in her hometown of Galveston, Texas. There Clare will have the time to search for answers about her troubled past and her family's complicated relationship with the wealthy Carraday family. She also finds herself drawn into the century-old mystery involving Stella Carraday, who supposedly perished during the Great Hurricane of 1900. The further Clare delves into her past, the more questions arise... A gothic-tinged debut--gripping and suspenseful.
