Their lives were never the same again when they discovered a body in the lighthouse nearby. Soon thereafter, the family moved away and the inn was closed by their Aunt Julie. Twenty years later, Sarah is now an unhappily married woman with a string of family tragedies behind her. Needing an escape, she accepts an invitation from her aunt to visit Sea Scope, and her past comes back to haunt her.
