Psychologist Estelle Caylie’s life is getting complicated. Unfortunately, it didn’t even start out well. Estelle remembers very little of her troubled childhood, a childhood she survived through her voracious reading. Then with the untimely death of her brother under suspicious circumstances, Estelle goes about finding her estranged sister to unite the family for the funeral.
Estelle’s childhood memories begin to return. Vague memories that are just sounds and smells and body sensations. Nothing she can put together. They come, wave after wave of them, ever more intense, pulling her under. Yet another family tragedy strengthens the riptide.
Will the love that surrounds Estelle be enough? Will it get Estelle back on her feet, or will she be pulled under by the powerful tragedy and trauma that she’s experienced?
