Tempest Bay, 1910. A south seas smuggling town where misfits of all kinds live with vivid intensity. Marjorie Morton and Constance Pream are smart and strange and gloriously difficult. Both know they’ll be lifelong friends. But when a storm brings a distress call from the ocean deep, terrors emerge to threaten everything they love.
The acclaimed Project Tempest series imagines a world on the cusp of emotional climate change: a profound shift in how our inner lives connect to the places around us. The warring forces of this world are kindness and cruelty, creativity and death, history and memory and possibility and the deep primordial horror that echoes from the ocean to the stars.
