Out of the blue, Rebecca Stafford's Father arrives to parent her after years of absence. He then extracts her last bit of normalcy by moving them to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The shocking news plunges Rebecca into a despair that brings about an otherworldly encounter; she begins to have visions of her deceased Mom. Uncertain whether what she sees is reality or the product of a troubled mind, Rebecca searches for an anchor to keep her from drifting in the new coastal town. She clings to Shawn, the eccentric, spritely boy-next-door promising adventures...with surprises of his own, involving an Irish legend and a hidden lighthouse. This brings on a whole new dimension to Rebecca's visions, and sparks feverish romance between her and Shawn. A bond eventually threatened by forces beyond her control, sending her spiralling into dark, stormy places, leaving her to wonder how broken a mind can get. Trigger Warning: This book contains scenes of mental illness, teens having sexual relations, brief profanity, a brief scene of domestic violence, and a brief scene of a teen with suicidal thoughts who overcomes them. The scenes are written with a great deal of care and are not grossly explicit. This book is recommended for ages 16+.
