A cryptic message from a Ouija board sends Heather Kelly on a journey to find her past. But the deadly spirit hiding in the branches of the family tree means that her past may become her future...and her fate... More
Heather Kelly knows next to nothing about her family history, but with a new child on the way and her husband deployed to Afghanistan, learning about her roots suddenly becomes vitally important to her. Especially when a warning conveyed through a Ouija board by persons unknown implies that her ignorance may be placing both Heather and the baby she carries in mortal danger…
With the assistance of an unusual group of friends, Heather quickly learns that folklore and myth have their own truth. For hidden in the gnarled and tangled branches of her family tree is a secret so dark it has become a part of the national character of the Emerald Isle itself. Heather soon finds herself face to face with the most dreaded figure from Irish legend: the banshee.
Heather's journey takes her from Marblehead, Massachusetts, to Malin Head, Ireland on a quest to learn the truth behind the legend in a desperate race against time. Aided by seen and unseen allies on both sides of the veil between the mortal world and the one beyond, Heather struggles to assemble the bewildering puzzle. If she fails to unravel the mystery surrounding the vengeful spirit and its connection to her, the past sufferings of her forebears will become her
future…and her fate.
