Sarah Salas buried her clairvoyance at age six, bowing to her family’s insistence that she become “normal” to fit into society. But the opposite occurred. Sarah’s struggle to suppress her psychic abilities forced her into a lonely, isolated life.
Fifty years later, soon after Sarah accepts an offer too tempting to refuse, as if on cue, her clairvoyance bursts out, compelling her to abandon her safe life and relocate to a secluded house in the North Cascades of Washington State.
An irresistible psychic pull leads her to a box full of old photographs in the attic. Each photo offers a story to Sarah’s paranormal senses. One by one, the deceased residents of not only her house, but also its twin, the home of her neighbor Conrad Thompson, share a fragmented tapestry of jealousy, incest, and murder.
As Sarah explores the past, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Conrad. Alone most of her life, she’s now surrounded by Conrad’s loving family - alive and dead. Only once before did she attempt love but the relationship ended in heartache and humiliation. Unless Conrad can accept Sarah for all she is, history could repeat itself - a disgrace Sarah dares not relive.
