Willa Dunn and Lee Chandler are on the cusp of discovering their love transcends best friendship as they spend every summer together at the idyllic Upstate New York community of Forestlands Lake, nestled in the foothills of the Taconic Mountains. The summer just before they turn sixteen a tragic accident befalls Willa’s family and without warning, Willa and Lee are torn apart from circumstances way beyond the control of teenage girls.
Twenty-five years later Willa is a successful author of the young adult ghost stories she loved to read as a child. She returns to the lake looking for a writer’s retreat and an opportunity to connect with her troubled teenage sister, Nicole.
Lee, single mother to her wise-beyond-her-years teenage daughter, Maggie, is the director of the summer camp on the other side of Forestlands Lake, which has its own history of tragedy. When Willa and Lee were kids a young girl went missing from the camp and was never found.
Before Willa and Nicole even have the chance to unpack, their plans are upset by a mysterious young girl, a near drowning, and surprise reunion. Nicole’s already reckless behavior grows increasingly erratic as the coming days bring shocking revelations, unsettling occurrences, and long-overdue second chances.
Together Willa and Lee will work to protect the girls, reconcile their past and unearth the secrets surrounding Forestlands Lake, putting the old ghosts to rest once and for all.
