High upon the cliffs of a remote Scottish island, there is a lighthouse that has weathered storms for centuries. Lòn Haven was meant to be safe. But for Liv Stay and her three daughters, strange things start to happen. The villagers say it's the work of witches. Liv doesn't know what to believe. But within months, nine-year-old Luna will the only one of the family left. Twenty years after that dark year on Lòn Haven, Luna is still haunted by questions. To find out, she must return to the lighthouse - the one place she promised she would never revisit. Author of "The Nesting." "Two sisters go missing on a remote Scottish island. Twenty years later, one is found-but she's still the same age as when she disappeared. The secrets of witches have reached across the centuries in this chilling Gothic thriller from the author of the acclaimed The Nesting. When single mother Liv is commissioned to paint a mural in a 100-year-old lighthouse on a remote Scottish island, it's an opportunity to start over with her three daughters-Luna, Sapphire, and Clover. When two of her daughters go missing, she's frantic. She learns that the cave beneath the lighthouse was once a prison for women accused of witchcraft. The locals warn her about wildlings, supernatural beings who mimic human children, created by witches for revenge. Liv is told wildlings are dangerous and must be killed. Twenty-two years later, Luna has been searching for her missing sisters and mother. When she receives a call about her youngest sister, Clover, she's initially ecstatic. Clover is the sister she remembers-except she's still seven years old, the age she was when she vanished. Luna is worried Clover is a wildling. Luna has few memories of her time on the island, but she'll have to return to find the truth of what happened to her family. But she doesn't realize just how much the truth will change her".
