When a grieving widow strikes a bargain with a mysterious woman in a moonlit cemetery in the small town of Solomon, NC, she has no idea that she is about to set into motion a chain of events that will curse her family forever. But she can’t take the grief any longer, and is prepared to do anything for just one more chance with the man lying in the grave beneath her.

Over twenty years later, the woman’s son has married his college sweetheart. They seem to have it all – college degrees in hand and a bright future ahead of them. But little does the young couple know that a day of reckoning is fast approaching, and that a dark family secret is about to be revealed.

When the ghostly messenger arrives to settle the bargain struck on that cold November night so long ago, the young couple will soon realize that every soul has a price, and that there may be no way for them to escape from the ties that bind.

It is in Solomon where JoAnna will meet Isabelle Pearl, a mysterious woman that lives on the edge of town, a woman the locals call Wicked Izzy. JoAnna will find out that Isabelle Pearl holds the key to her destiny, as well as a remedy for her grieving heart.

And JoAnna will soon learn that the remedy Isabelle Pearl offers comes with a price.
