A compelling tale of edgy, small-town emotions, lingering obsession, and romantic salvation.Andrew, after many years, returns to his hometown to attend his mother's funeral. Planning to remain only a few days, he is drawn into the tragic legacy of his childhood friend and beautiful girl next door, Eden Close. An adopted child, Eden had learned to avoid the mother who did not want her and to please the father who did.

And as the truth about Eden's past comes to light, so too does Andrew's strange and binding attachment to her reveal itself.
