Book Companion

In this gripping, atmospheric family drama, a young woman investigates the forty year old murder that inspired her mother’s bestselling novel, and uncovers devastating truths—and dangerous lies. Digging into the past—and her mother’s cult classic—draws Meg to Bonny Island, Georgia, and an unusual woman said to be the inspiration for the book. At first island life seems idyllic, but as Meg starts to ask tough questions, disturbing revelations come to light…including some about her mother. When her own life is threatened, Meg realizes the darkness found in her mother’s book is nothing compared to the chilling truth that lurks off the page.
