Jess Abbot lost her son, Chance, in a hit-and-run accident eight years ago. She’s floundered ever since, unable to shake her grief. When Jess leaves her home to become the caregiver of Lucy, “the Witch of Pine Lake,” she hopes to put the past behind her. Instead, she’s forced to face it in ways she never could have imagined.
Author Melissa Payne’s debut doesn’t shy away from the heartbreak of Jess’s situation, nor does it dwell in it. Instead, as Jess becomes part of Lucy’s world and the mysteries that it holds, she finds it is possible to move forward—and that starts with forgiveness.
