Colleen, the adherent, begins anew in Scotland, and meets someone also from New Orleans, but their different worlds create a wall between them. Evangeline, the genius, learns about the ups and downs of forbidden love the hard way. Maureen, the haunted, sees an opportunity to forge her own path, but quickly finds herself in way over her head.
Elizabeth, the anguished, the unwilling storyteller of the fated clan, discovers there might yet be a relief for her terrible visions, but the cost is terrible.
