Lucy Jones possesses an unusual - and extraordinary - gift. Her ability to sense the emotions of others is both a blessing and a curse, eventually driving her to seek refuge from its consequences by fleeing her hometown of Sydney. The coastal town of Duruga is everything she imagined it would be: sleepy, isolated and void of the emotional chaos that plagued her in the city. But when the mysterious Heath Stone enters her life, Lucy is overwhelmed by startling sensations in his presence. Frightened and intrigued by this uncommon reaction to a person, Lucy is uncontrollably drawn to Heath. Despite her efforts, and the sinister warnings from the townsfolk, she cannot fight the force of her attraction. When strange events begin to occur and the truth about Duruga's sordid history is unveiled, Lucy suspects that there may be more to the quiet town, and to Heath, than she had first imagined. As Lucy and Heath's fates become irrevocably entwined, the answers Lucy has been seeking all her life may be closer than she ever wanted to believe.
