With the death of her cold-hearted mother, TJ faces life in a decaying town with a father she barely knows. From a future bright with promise to one stripped of everything she's worked so hard to achieve, TJ needs more than luck in her corner. Roman is trouble, pure and simple-at least that's what everyone keeps telling her. He's a juvenile delinquent with sealed records and a suspicious link to the town's tragic past, but despite all warnings, TJ can't ignore his dark pull. In a coal mining town where lives were once shattered beyond repair, a new evil surfaces, forging strange alliances as both believers and skeptics alike face the inexplicable to save their livelihood, their families and even their faith. Some secrets are worth keeping, some secrets must find the light of day, but in the end… some secrets you take to the grave, no matter what the cost.

TJ just lost her mother a demanding woman with little love to give. Now she is living with a father she knows little about and her older brother is leaving again her only support, and his parting words are stay away from him. In addition to all of this she is on unfamiliar territory, no friends and has gone from riches to small town rural America with little to no money. She adapts fairly well and made friends with the intellectual crowd and of course Roman the one she was warned to stay away from, but living in the apartment above her fathers business it’s almost impossible to do.
Strange things start happening with no explanation and no answers at the only employer in town the mines.
It seems the only people who have answers are gone, the town priest and Roman.
This story ends with no answers and no explanations and has left me with lots of angst.
Narration was good but not great.
