Fleeting peace descends on the Deschanels in New Orleans. Loved ones have returned. A calm appears in the chaos.
Life is—seemingly—back to normal.
Those who had been away re-establish old routines. They trade intrigue for dinner parties. Survival skills for day jobs.
Settling into a quiet life comes with a sense of long-awaited relief, one they desperately want to embrace. To sit in silence in their gardens at twilight and dream of a future where their loved ones are happy, healthy, and safe.
Yet under the surface lurks the shadows of their past and the dark promises of tomorrow.
A reckoning awaits, and this time, there’s nothing left to do but meet it head on.
