Fleeing the nightmare her life has become she seeks out a mentor, deep in the Louisiana Bayou. For the first time she learns she is not alone. Finally, a family. But it’s a family she can’t keep.

Fearing persecution—and worse—because of her paranormal abilities, she quickly learns she must keep everyone at arm’s length, including the woman for whom her feelings are far too risky to explore.
Having only her broken past to go by, Echo trusts no future. Can someone so incredibly different find safety, friends, let alone love, in a society that denies her very existence?
