Clara Montague didn’t want to come home. Her mother Constance never liked—or listened—to her but now they have to get along or they will both end up dead.
Clara suspects she and Constance share intuitive powers, but Constance always denied it. When Clara was twenty, she dreamed her beloved father would have a heart attack. Constance claimed she was hysterical. Then he died.
Furious, Clara leaves for fifteen years, but when she dreams Constance is in danger, she returns home. Then, Constance’s therapist is murdered and Constance is arrested.
Starting to explore her mother’s past, Clara discovers books on trauma and gets a midnight visit from a knife-wielding intruder. Her dreams become more demanding and there’s a second murder. Clara realizes that only in finding the connection between Hugh’s murder and her mother’s past can she save them and finally heal their relationship.
