Emma’s parents think she is dead. It started with a shift in atmosphere. The forest greeted Emma with starting force. At first she couldn’t move her limbs, and then her vision was rendered useless, paralyzed to the forces within the forest. The voices came in a dream at first, commanding her against her will deeper into the forest. After months of fighting for control, it took only one moment to lose her human life forever. Now she is nothing more than an Essence, watching as her life unfolds without her.

In this young adult fantasy about love, loss, and family, Emma must choose between letting go and moving on. Without her, the lives of Emma’s family will forever be changed, but what if she could keep part of her human life, even if she was only an Essence?
