Honey, I just want you to have everything you ever wanted. That's what Jacy's mom always told her.
And Jacy feels like she finally does.
Newly married and with a baby on the way, Jacy and her husband, Jed, go to visit his father, Dr. Ash, in his remote cottage in the woods of northern Michigan. From the moment they arrive, Jacy feels bathed in love by Dr.
Ash, if less so by his housekeeper, the enigmatic Mrs. Brandt.
Then Jacy has a health scare. Swiftly, all eyes are on Jacy's condition, and whispers about Jed's long-dead mother and complicated family history seem to be intruding upon the present.
As the days pass, Jacy feels trapped in the cottage, her body under the looking glass. But are her fears founded or is this -as is suggested to her-a stubborn refusal to take necessary precautions to protect her unborn child? The dense woods surrounding the cottage are full of dangers, but are the greater ones inside?
