The morning was dark and gray. The sun was absent and the air was cool. The town of Kilcrohane had not been as silent in many years. One could scarcely hear the crashing of the ocean waves against the stony shore, and the wafts of the gusting wind in the trees, but all other sounds ceased. The birds and even the crickets could not be heard, and the townspeople shut themselves inside their homes and locked their doors. Shopkeepers and pub owners closed early. They were familiar with this silence, and although many were too young to remember, they recalled the tales of what this air would bring.
Miranda Kelly left the States to return to Kilcrohane, County Cork where she spent the summers with her beloved grandmother growing up. There to relocate the sense of magic she once felt in her heart, she learns she must open her eyes to the town's supernatural secrets and decide whether to run away, or to stay and risk her life for the man she loves.
