When the Great Storm of 1893 leaves fifteen-year-old Gabbie homeless, the only place she can go is to New Orleans. On her only other visit, she heard voices no one else heard. She saw things no one else saw. She pierced the veil that separates the living from the dead. The thought of returning terrifies her.
Now, she has to navigate in a world where superstition, conjure, mystery, and magic blend to make up the fabric of everyday life. It’s here she learns her paranormal power is a Gift passed down from mother to daughter. The only problem is -- she doesn’t want it. When circumstances force her to reconsider, she begins a journey to learn the truth about herself, her Gift, and her family. On the way, she also learns about friendship, love, and betrayal.
