It's a long, languorous, country summer in a small Ohio town. After many years spend away as a scholar and a writer, Elizabeth Lane has returned to the setting of her most poignant childhood memories, a town steeped in her family's long history. She comes to Sunbury to work on a book but finds she is haunted by one memory in particular.
