For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man. Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the '60s, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique.

Everyone in the small town of Denton is searching for Isabelle Coleman, a missing 17-year-old girl. All they've found so far is her phone and another girl they didn't even know was missing. Mute and completely unresponsive to the world around her, it's clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Detective Josie Quinn can get from her is a name: Ramona. Currently suspended from the force for misconduct, Josie takes matters into her own hands as the name leads her to evidence linking the two girls.

Nasally, annoying voice, mispronounces words throughout the whole book. Her accent drove me nuts. Ruined the story. I don’t think I can continue the series if she is the narrator

I can’t believe they allowed this awful narrator to ruin another Tess novel. She sounds like a 97 year old, chain smoking Cathy moriarty. She takes long, inappropriately placed pauses. Her deep breathing and inhaling is distracting. The story it’s self is boring, confusing and too long. I’ve loved every Tess book except this one.
