Reformed party girl Meg Ashley leads a life of privilege, thanks to a bestselling horror novel her mother wrote decades ago.

Desperate to break free of her mother, Meg accepts a proposal to write a scandalous, tell-all memoir. Digging into the pastand her mother's cult classicdraws 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.
