Summary
Elena Alvarez is living a cursed life. From the deadly fire she accidentally set as a child, to her mother's abandonment, and now to an unwanted pregnancy, she knows better than most that small actions can have terrible consequences. Driven to the high mountains surrounding Leadville, Colorado by her latest bad decision, she's intent on putting off the future. Perhaps there she can just hide in her grandmother's isolated cabin and wait for something-anything-to make her next choice for her. Instead, she is confronted by reflections of her own troubles wherever she turns-the recent widower and his two children adrift in a changed world, Elena's own mysterious family history, and the interwoven lives within the town itself. Bit by bit, Elena begins to question her understanding of cause and effect, reexamining the tragedies she's held on to and the wounds she's refused to let heal. But when the children go missing, Elena's fragile new peace is shattered. It's only at the prospect of fresh loss and blame that she will discover the truth of the terrible burdens we take upon ourselves, the way tragedy and redemption are inevitably intertwined-and how curses can sometimes lead to blessings, however disguised

Summary
More than a decade after accidentally setting a deadly fire as a child, Elena Alvarez is living a shadow of a life, unwilling to act, expecting her choices to have unbearable consequences on those around her. An unintended pregnancy serves only to paralyze her further. Anxious to put off adult decisions and their consequences a little longer, she agrees to spend the summer in the town of Leadville, Colorado, just down the mountain from her grandmother’s isolated home, to care for two children whose mother has recently died
