Summary:

For New Yorkers Catherine and Mark, a picturesque coastal village in Sicily offers an escape from the shadow over Catherine's career and a chance to rebuild their eroding marriage. Catherine sets up an art studio, while Mark explores the exciting potential of Italy's languishing agricultural regions.

For a moment, there's hope for healing on the banks of the sparkling lagoon. But the appearance of a mysterious young boy shakes their relationship to its core. As Catherine begins to devote her attention to the child, Mark follows a troubling path of destruction, betraying Catherine's trust in devastating ways.

Catherine discovers their idyllic surroundings also belie a sinister history, driving the couple even further apart. As they delve deeper into the secrets of their town and in their marriage, will the truths they uncover separate them for good?

    The book was a little slow. Not badly written. The ending was totally unexpected. I finished listening to the book three days ago and still cannot get the picture of the ending out of my mind. Not in a good way. The narrator is the only reason I gave this book a three. She was good.
