Publisher's summary Edit

"I’ve seen this before - once the obsession takes control there’s no going back, there’s no way to save them."

Collinsport is broken after recent events. David Collins is intent on rebuilding the town he almost helped to destroy, and enlists the help of his old friend Amy Cunningham.

As these two childhood companions begin to reconnect and discover feelings they never knew existed, another woman from David’s past is about to make her own timely return.

Synopsis Edit

Collinsport. A town on the edge of the sea. A town on the edge of the world. A town that just a few days ago faced a devastating destruction. Now, on a cold September night, two old friends, reunited after many years apart, look to the future. But they are unaware that another prodigal daughter of Collinsport is about to return.
