The Dane family's roots tangle deep in the Ozark Mountain town of Henbane, but that doesn't keep 16-year-old Lucy Dane from being treated like an outsider. Folks still whisper about her mother, a bewitching young stranger who inspired local myths when she vanished when Lucy was still a baby. Then one of Lucy's few friends, Cheri, is found murdered, and Lucy feels haunted by both women: by the mother she never knew and the friend she couldn't protect. And when she stumbles across Cheri's necklace in an abandoned trailer, she begins to suspect that Cheri's death could be linked to her mother's disappearance
