A woman is drawn into a shadowy family legacy in this “mysterious and brooding” novel from the author of Dreams of Origami (Taranaki Daily News).

When her grandmother dies, Chloe is left in possession of all Miriam’s belongings, including a curious silver amulet. But the necklace is more than just an odd piece of jewelry. When Chloe puts it on, she discovers its power to sweep her away to another world, one of illusion, duplicity, and danger.

As her friends and family’s concern grows for her mental health, Chloe delves deeper into the mysteries of her grandmother’s past. Soon, she’ll find herself a pawn in an ancient love story that has haunted the women in her family for generations, and is sought out by an intriguing stranger that may be the key to secrets of her family’s history.
