Tara Spencer is the new mother of a baby girl - one who, by all accounts, should not exist.
And though her worries go far beyond diapers and feeding times, she finds herself settling comfortably into the community of Willow Springs, away from the prying eyes of The Brotherhood religious order and former-flame-turned-betrayer Cyril Woods.
But when her daughter goes missing and her best friend is violently attacked, Tara's newfound sense of security comes to a screeching halt. She realizes that nowhere will be safe until she solves the mystery of her virgin pregnancy once and for all.
While DNA testing seems to lead to more questions than answers, Tara struggles to separate friend from foe - until a series of shocking discoveries finally shed light on the greater meaning behind her unusual situation.
In the stunning second installment of The Awakening series, societal roles are tested and religious norms questioned in a thrilling, paranormal pause resister combining elements of Rosemary's Baby and The Da Vinci Code.
