Lenore Featherjohn found the girl, frozen against a snow bank behind Lenore's bed-and-breakfast. Some said she was a ghost. Others said an angel.
Lenore knows better. Fearing that the police might look to her sons as murderers, she hires Jake Rikker and his crusty business partner, May, to investigate the suspicious circumstances surrounding her undesirable discovery. Their search leads them not to the strange girl – or to Earth's final days, as many in the town suspect – but to Amy McLaren, the wife of the Stone Church's minister. As Jake and May get closer to the truth, the tension between Lenore and Amy rises, forcing both women to face the secrets they've hidden far too long.
