Two women, one love, and a curse
lurking beneath the water
For as long as she can remember, Maris Heilen has been haunted by dreams of a beautiful woman beckoning to her from beneath the water. These dreams have been Maris’ only constant; she’s lived her life like a leaf caught in the rushing tide: no rules, no commitments, and no long-term lovers, either—just a string of broken hearts that have tried to anchor her unwilling heart to the earth. When, following the mysterious death of her estranged father, her dreams take on a new sense of urgency and her boyfriend Graham proposes, Maris knows its time to uproot and keep moving, though the only direction she can think to go is west, toward the water—toward her. When instead Maris finds herself drawn to a surreal little town high in the Colorado Mountains, she can’t shake the feeling her dream might be much closer to reality than she could have imagined. But, when she discovers her past is linked to a legend even more haunted than her dreams—and that the woman she’s been dreaming about is not only real but in danger of being lost to an unfathomable darkness—Maris becomes determined to outshine the evil that has crept into a small corner of a forgotten forest of Havenwood Falls.
