Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393061485, Hardcover)

A suspenseful debut novel about identity, reminiscent of the mythical lyricism of Margaret Atwood and the taut eroticism of Josephine Hart.

Janet grew up with her father; her mother, she was always told, died when she was three. But now she discovers she has inherited a house from her mother—who, she learns, died only recently. In a state of shock she travels north with the key, and finds an old stone cottage at the sea's edge.

Tom was raised by his mother, traveling from one place to another, his only stability the stories she told him—stories of shape-shifters, danger, impossible love. Now he hides away in an old stone cottage at the sea's edge, waiting for the woman he knows will come. When Janet arrives, she is surprised to find Tom and to find herself mysteriously drawn to him.

In Erica Wagner's world of truth and terror, lives and stories become so interwoven that, in the end, all distinctions are lost. Her hypnotic prose is charged with an intensity that will leave the reader breathless.

Janet grew up with her father; her mother, she was always told, died when she was three. Her father's stories were of her mother's beauty, their early love - tales stopping short of tragedy. But now, living an ocean away from her childhood home, she discovers she has inherited a house from her mother - who, she learns, has only died recently. In a state of shock she travels north with the key: and finds an old stone cottage at the sea's edge. She presumes it will be empty. It is not. Tom was raised by his mother, travelling from one place to another, never settling, his only stability the stories she told him - stories of shape shifters, danger, impossible love. Now he hides away in an old stone cottage at the sea's edge, waiting for the woman he knows will come.Here is a world of truth and terror, where lives and stories become so interwoven that in the end, all distinctions are lost. Janet and Tom are possessed by their stories: can they possess each other, too?… (more)
