THE DEBUT NOVEL BY P.W. BORGMAN
Jen Carrigan, a young Silicon Valley professional, has lost seemingly everything: her job, her home. So when she learns about an abandoned mansion in the Santa Cruz Mountains, she packs up her dog and becomes a squatter. A harrowing encounter while trespassing turns into an unexpected friendship with a solitary neighbor, who has his own dark history with the house. As Jen searches for refuge, she's pulled into a tumultuous reunion with the family that pushed her away as a teen. But as she begins rebuilding her world, the mansion delivers a final, shattering surprise.
