Sasha doesn’t really mind moving. It’s not like there was any reason to stay in her old life, after all the trouble. But Manna Creek is strange. And when after a pretty nasty fall, she starts hearing and seeing things that haven’t happened yet, or happened a very long time ago, it gets even stranger.
When Sasha ‘sees’ the fire at the house owned by the old woman up on the hill, but can’t save her in time, she’s wracked with guilt and determined to find the murderer herself.
