From USA Today bestselling author Meg Donohue comes a spellbinding and suspenseful tale inspired by Wuthering Heights that illuminates the ways in which hope—and even magic—can blossom in the darkest of places.
As a child, Merrow spends her days exploring fog-cloaked bluffs and swimming in the coves around her coastal California home, Horseshoe Cliff. It is an enchanting childhood, but it is not without hardship—the mystery of Merrow’s mother’s death haunts her, as does the increasingly senseless cruelty of her older brother, Bear.
Then Amir arrives in Merrow’s life. He’s been tossed about from India to New York and now to Horseshoe Cliff, to stay with her family. Merrow is drawn to his spirit, his passion, and his resilience in the face of Bear’s viciousness. Together they embrace their love of the sea, and their growing love for each other.
But when tragedy strikes, Merrow is forced to question whether Amir is really the person she believed him to be. To find her own path forward, she must let go of the only home she’s ever known, and the only boy she’s ever loved....
