Ruby Jane Galbraith has nothing left. After an accident tears her family apart, she finds her entire world obliterated. And it's all her fault. The only thing that makes sense to her is Fox - a gentle new friend who is wise, soulful, and clever, yet oddly naive about the ways of the world. Fox understands her loss. Her pain. And he offers her a way out - a chance to find peace in a community that seems guided by love. He asks her to join him at the Institute of the Boundless Sublime. Ruby knows one thing for sure: her life without Fox is a life she doesn't want to live, and the Institute is the only way to keep him. But as she's drawn into the Institute's web, Ruby begins to learn its sinister secrets. A fast-paced plot and searing prose drive this gripping drama about an ordinary girl drawn into a secretive cult and how far she will go for love.
