About the Book

Nora Jenkins, a single parent with a nineteen year old daughter, lives on the coast of Maine. Nora struggles to live a full life, often feeling unhappy, afraid and alone. Her daughter Angelica, now in prison, has broken off all contact with her mother. One day Nora finds a second-hand dress made of black linen and imprinted with fish skeletons and tribal symbols. A perfect fit, the dress makes Nora feel better about herself and has a magical effect on others. But she soon learns that the dress has a shadow side. She turns to psychic Rosie Deerborn to unravel the dress’s secrets and bring her daughter back into her life. Rosie consults their guides and tells Nora that the dress can help her but there are other obstacles—a traumatic childhood experience and toxic relationships with men—preventing Nora from living a good life. Rosie insists Nora must return to her previous life in Spain, in order to bring healing and happiness to Nora and her daughter. Nora reluctantly consents, and together they journey into another world.
