Summary
As a child growing up by the sea, Martha Mary endured her parents' divorce, survived a tragedy that robbed her and her younger sister of their innocence, and she saw ghosts. Now a young adult, she escapes to a gorgeous inland town to study photography and to distance herself from that painful past and from her secret ability. There she impresses fellow students with her haunting images of abandoned landscapes, falls into a passionate love affair with a manipulative professor, and becomes entangled in the case of a young woman who has disappeared, when one Indian summer afternoon the missing woman appears beneath Martha's apartment window, wearing a down coat, her hair flecked with ice. Will Martha's gifts leave her terrifyingly alone, or will they lead her to a vital human connection?
Summary
"Karen Brown's most hypnotic novel to date--gothic-inflected psychological suspense that unmasks the secret desires of a young woman with a mystical gift. On the family homestead by the sea where she grew up, Martha Mary saw ghosts. As a young woman, she hopes to distance herself from those spirits by escaping to an inland college town. There, she is absorbed by a budding romance, relieved by separation from an unstable sister, and disinterested in the flyers seeking information about a young woman who's disappeared--until one Indian summer afternoon when the missing woman appears beneath Martha's apartment window, wearing a down coat, her hair coated with ice.
