27-year-old Jared has lived in the same little town in the Appalachian Mountains with the same people and the same traditions his entire life. Gossip travels fast. When Jared realizes he is trans, everything changes. Naming herself Claire, she tries to come out to her family and is shattered when she is rejected by everyone besides her twin sister. Her family was her entire life, and feeling she had lost everything, she throws herself into the local cave pool. Hours later, she wakes up in the cave in a new body—one near identical to her sister.
Confused and soaked, she realizes her house keys are missing and turns to her business partner and life-long friend, Gabe. Together, they figure out what her next steps should be. Claire knows she should leave town. Why would she want to stay anyway? But things get complicated when Claire realizes she has feelings for Gabe. It gets even more complicated when the community starts searching for her old, missing self…
As circumstances push her closer and closer to revealing the truth of her transformation and risking the rejection of a lifetime yet again, Claire will be forced to make a life-changing decision in the name of love… if she can only find the courage to do so.
