Trapped in a tedious job without fulfilment, ambitions, or a boyfriend, Izzie Murray's only passion is researching her ancestry. But the beautiful mural of her family tree switches from a distraction to an obsession once she hits a mysterious gap in the timeline. Why would an entire family just disappear?
With an intense craving to find the last pieces of the puzzle, Izzie ditches her life in England to investigate the last known whereabouts of the family - the little town of Bulwark, Georgia. Between the unnatural behaviour of the local wildlife, tales of witches, and the overpowering draw of a puddle of weird goo, she's only finding more questions to answer. The instant attraction to the one resident in town that seems to be on her side isn't helping either.
Bulwark does not give up its secrets easily. And sometimes things were hidden for a reason.
