Product Description

Alicen McCaffrey finally has the life her mother always dreamed for her: beautiful home in Santa Monica, successful husband, adorable daughter. Then tragedy blows her carefully assembled façade to pieces. Worse yet—Alicen feels solely responsible. At rock bottom, she decides to accompany a childhood friend back to Red Lodge, Montana, where they spent summers together as kids.

The peaceful mountain landscape, accented with lush forests and small-town charm, brings back happy memories of time spent with her beloved, eccentric Grandma Josephine. Alicen begins to hope that perhaps things could be different here. Perhaps the oppressive guilt will lift—if only for a moment.

But when Alicen starts hearing voices and seeing mysterious figures near the river in the woods, she begins to fear she’s completely lost her sanity, as it’s rumored her grandmother did. Or might there be more to Red Lodge than meets the eye? Could the voices and visions be real—and her only means of finding the healing she so desperately needs? Or will they prove to be her final undoing?

Product Details


Dekker (the Seer trilogy) turns away from dystopian themes to tell an intricate psychological suspense story with fine shades of the fantastical. . . . Tackling topics of grief and mental illness, Dekker has crafted a story that is hauntingly hopeful.

Starred review. Christy Award winner Dekker (The Seer Collection) has written a compelling, mystical story of a woman who has everything and loses it all, only to gain something much more. Like her father, novelist Ted Dekker, the author plumbs the depths of faith and the human psyche in her many layered novels. VERDICT: Suggest to fans of women’s fiction, Ted Dekker, and readers who enjoy stories that make them think.
