In 1939, a freak storm blew across the village of Dory Cove on the Oregon coast, destroying homes and boats, and leaving three people dead. Young Spence Chadwick was swept into the sea at the treacherous Devil's Churn, a huge cleft in the rocks next to the ocean. His body was never found.

Fifty years later, Spence's old sweetheart, Addy, comes across a young man in the yard of her recently deceased mother, a young man who looks just like her beloved Spence did--fifty years ago. At first she cannot believe it is him. No one in the town can, except for one crochety old war veteran. But soon the people of Dory Cove realize that this really is Spence, though they do not know if he is a ghost, back from the dead, or a man who has slept through the last fifty years of his life, like the legendary Rip Van Winkle. Spence's return brings to the surface terrible secrets long hidden by the people of Dory Cove, and unleashes a terrifying power, born in the sea, that threatens to destroy the whole town.

In The Devil's Churn, Kristine Kathryn Rusch unveils a whole new world of terror, a secret hidden by the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean . For Spence Chadwick, those fifty years were not a blissful dream, but a strange and frightening time. The Devil's Churn is a truly haunting tale of the mystery of the sea, and what evil it can contain.
