When Edgar Freemantle moves to the remote island of Duma Key to escape his past, he doesn´t expect to find much there.
But Duma has been waiting for him, and something in the view from his window urges him to discover a talent he never knew he had.
Edgar Freemantle begins to paint. And as he paints, the island´s secrets begin to stir. Secrets of children lost in the undertow, of a ghost ship riding the distant horizon - and a family´s buried past reaching long hands into the present.
