Distraught over her partner's betrayal, poet Maria Pell, no stranger to paranormal phenomena, flees to Cherapee, a small coastal town in North Carolina, to participate in a writers retreat. She brings verses written by a deceased local poet, intending to find the woman who inspired them. Her writer friend, Bo Bennett has also signed on to teach at the retreat. Researching a history of the Creighton family, he discovers someone is killing descendants of Old Peter Creighton, a seventeenth century slave-owner. Are the murders retribution for past sins or do they provide cover for something sinister that's more immediate? Racial tensions seethe in the barrier island community where river mists and blind reverence for old traditions hide secrets of the living and the dead. The poems and Bo's findings solve old mysteries and forever change the way in which people regard themselves and each other in Cherapee County.
