When her infant daughter Sarah unexpectedly dies, Claire, feeling blame, reinvents herself as a landscape gardener in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Claire imagines Sarah still alive, marking her birthdays, Christmas, first day of school – almost as if Sarah never died.

Remarrying, Claire acquires a step-daughter, eight-year-old Mandy – about the age Sarah would be had she lived. Part vamp, part jealous, bossy, and troubled, Mandy is nothing like Sarah, who still lives on in Claire’s imagination.

As Claire lives two lives – one real and one imagined – the clash between the two daughters threatens to destroy her, releasing demons she has managed – so far – to hold at bay.

As the story hurtles toward its ending, Claire will choose between a new life and a haunted past.
