Summoned to her abusive father’s funeral, Tara Stewart drives alone through the pitch-black night from Charlotte to Ottawa, haunted by the ghosts of her past. She hasn’t spoken to her family in years, and the last place she wants to be is in the company of her vindictive twin sister and her shady brother-in-law.
And then the hail begins to fall.
Barely making it to Ottawa alive, Tara falls on the icy driveway and is dragged inside as she loses consciousness. Her sleep is troubled and plagued by nightmares, and she awakes in the middle of the night to see her late father standing at the foot of her bed, warning her that she’s in great danger. Her sister has drugged her, and plans to do much worse.
Outside, the hailstorm is still raging. Reports on the news suggest that it is a worldwide catastrophe.
Now prisoners in their own home, the three estranged family members must try to survive the worst storm in modern history. But Tara must also survive the voices in her head, the ghosts that haunt her father’s house, and the family she’s trapped inside with. They want something of hers, and they’ll do anything to get it…
And the hailstorm shows no signs of dying anytime soon.
