Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp in the North Carolina Mountains. It was there that she escaped the weight of her mother's expectations and the grief of her father's tragic death, and it was there that she met Nick Abrams, her first love...and first heartbreak.
Years later, Thayer marries Aengus, an unconventional Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from Camp Edge-wood on Burnt Mountain, where her father died in a car accident. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives, content with their easy routines and friendly neighbors. But when Aengus is invited up to the camp on Burnt Mountain to tell Irish tales to the young campers, things slowly begin to change. As Aengus spends less time at home and becomes more immersed in his life up at the camp, Thayer is forced to confront dark secrets, about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband.
