things have been calm lately, at the lighthouse on top of Storidrangur, despite the tension between the survivors--but on the other hand, Vala and her family seem to be spiralling into a private family hell that is not of their own making. then again, if no one in this book ever did anything seriously wrong...then why oh why are they all being persecuted, starting with the Why did you lie? notes? it's all very creepy. should finish it up sometime today--hoping to be dazzled right to the end.
