After Kate Aitken loses her job, she accepts a summer job archiving the work of an infamous and brilliant 80s photographer, Miranda Brand, in the tiny Northern California town of Callaluma to get back on her feet. Working her way through Miranda’s papers, Kate finds herself torn between the conviction that there is more to Miranda’s suicide than meets the eye and her fledgling feelings for Theo, Miranda’s son. But Kate learns through Miranda’s art and words just how vast the gulf between public and private personas can be — especially for someone of Miranda’s notoriety — as she delves deeper into the secrets and lies of a tight-knit community.
