is a survivor. Sheâ€™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 canâ€™t explain. Itâ€™s just another
of so many unanswered questions she grew up with in a family
estranged by silence and secrets.
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.
Elleâ€™s past unfolds, so does the truthâ€”if she can believe it. She
must face the reasons for her inexplicable dread. As dark as they
are, Elle must listenâ€¦before her grandfatherâ€™s death buries the
familyâ€™s secrets forever.
