A young man named Gabriel grows up in rural Cornwall, New York, without knowing his real parents. His desire to be known and loved, to truly be part of a family, seems like it might become a reality when he tracks down his biological father, Adán. Worlds away in Gravesend, Brooklyn, a shocking act of violence has changed sixteen-year-old Elodia’s life forever, leaving her disfigured, unable to speak, and living a painfully lonely existence. The once-social teenager is friendless and alone—until the first day of her junior year of high school, when she meets her seductive history teacher, Duncan Wolk, who effortlessly speaks her language of silence. How Elodia and Duncan’s story ends is also a revelation about who they truly are, and how their lives intertwine and link together. This is a novel about the terrible magic that can be family, parents and siblings, tradition, rivalry, and love.
