Twenty-four year old artist Miranda Lewis is desperate to get away from her controlling ex—so desperate she leaves him in the middle of the night. She ends up on a remote island off the Maine coast, where she befriends a bubbly shopkeeper, Claire, and becomes fascinated by Claire’s son, big, brooding Owen Larsen, a woodworker who keeps to himself. Even the friendliest locals here are secretive—and Owen is at the center of their secrets.
Still, Miranda loves the salt air, the craggy coastline, and, most of all, the work of the island’s beloved local painter, Suzanna White. Miranda wants to stay—to claim a life of her own, to fall in love with art again. But the longer she stays, the more her fascination with Owen increases. Why is there a painting of his stern, handsome face in the gallery by the beach? And why is everyone so afraid of him?
