Everyone on Rand’s Island swore Eva Haskel was crazy. Ever since the well-publicized, unsolved kidnapping of her baby, she was a tragic figure on the tiny island off the Connecticut coast, wildly mourning the child who mysteriously vanished six long years ago. Then a shocking twist of fate and a very determined young woman enter Eva’s dark world to bring her son home at last….
Bethany Logan, a spirited teacher at a private boys’ school in New Hampshire, teaches children with learning disabilities. All of her students adore her…except for one: Pip Stafford, a moody troublemaker and son of the school headmaster. Determined to solve Pip’s behavior problems, Bethany delves deep into his files and discovers a clue to the boy’s true identity. Now, determined to right the wrongs of a heinous crime, Bethany takes Pip to isolated Rand’s Island. But her effort to put the past behind them rapidly escalates into terror, drawing Bethany deep into a world of madness, as she learns not only the danger of digging up the past, but that the present holds no escape from her own darkest fears and tragic memories.
