A Darkly Beating HeartBook - 2016
Reiko's heart is full of hatred. Her classmates and her brother terrorize her. The first girl she's ever loved jilted her. After a failed suicide attempt at her home in Seattle, Reiko's parents send her to spend the summer with family in Japan. While visiting Kuramagi, a historic village preserved to reflect the nineteenth-century Edo period, Reiko finds herself slipping backward into 1862 and the life of Miyu, a young woman even more vengeful than Reiko herself. Reiko loves escaping into Miyu's life-- until she discovers Kuramagi's dark secret and must face down Miyu's demons as well as her own.
