After Emma Shay’s father dies, that summer– the summer of 1979– her mother moves them cross country to live with Gran in Springvale, a small isolated town in southern Indiana. Springvale is a place with bizarre rules that people are afraid to break. A place of hushed whisperings about long-ago secrets.
Emma’s own secret is her attraction to William, the dark handsome visitor at the library where she works. But she is puzzled and intrigued by his behavior. He sits day after day at the same table in the back of the library. He speaks at her but never to her. He is there and then he isn’t. He is beautiful, mysterious, tortured.
When Emma meets Jesse from the record shop down the street, Jesse offers excitement, a way out of town, and perhaps even a way to reach William and save him from his suffering.
Emma wants William, Jesse wants Emma, William wants to protect Emma. And the creepy town leaders– The Soul Seekers—want them all. But why?
