Summary from Goodreads:

Two sisters go missing on a remote Scottish island. Twenty years later, one is found--but she's still the same age as when she disappeared. The secrets of witches have reached across the centuries in this chilling Gothic thriller from the author of the acclaimed The Nesting.

When single mother Liv is commissioned to paint a mural in a 100-year-old lighthouse on a remote Scottish island, it's an opportunity to start over with her three daughters--Luna, Sapphire, and Clover. When two of her daughters go missing, she's frantic. She learns that the cave beneath the lighthouse was once a prison for women accused of witchcraft. The locals warn her about wildlings, supernatural beings who mimic human children, created by witches for revenge. Liv is told wildlings are dangerous and must be killed.

Twenty-two years later, Luna has been searching for her missing sisters and mother. When she receives a call about her youngest sister, Clover, she's initially ecstatic. Clover is the sister she remembers--except she's still seven years old, the age she was when she vanished. Luna is worried Clover is a wildling. Luna has few memories of her time on the island, but she'll have to return to find the truth of what happened to her family. But she doesn't realize just how much the truth will change her.

The thought and care that went into forming this plot line, absolutely blows my mind. I loved this book, although at times I had a hard time following who I was reading about. That might have something to do with the fact I was listening to the book instead of reading it, but I loved it all the same.

The author has woven so many wonderful characters that bring their own charm and wonder to the story. Each little part they play, intricately woven into the story, brings to life a crazy tale of magic and murder. Time travel and superstitions. I can normally figure out what is going to happen long before the ending, but this book took me on a riveting adventure.

This is a must read for the witching season as it will give you the good creeps. Loved it!

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
