Is this where she is supposed to live? Her parents have bought this one hundred-year-old building, recently converted into restaurant, on a peninsula sticking out into the Pacific Ocean.

But that is not all that is strange about it. Just across the bay is a tall, black mountain. Is that smoke or are those clouds that Veronica sees hanging over it? The previous owner claims that the volcano is dormant and has not erupted in “human memory”.

Veronica is not so sure.Is Veronica supposed to ignore the noises in the night and the things “skittering around” in dark corners? Isn’t it bad enough when she looks at the stained glass window in the main dining room and sees a piece of glass that emits such a light that it just about blinds her? It gives her bad dreams and makes her hallucinate about a blond-haired, blue-eyed girl who keeps on whispering her name.Then there is the unkempt, dark-haired dude with patches in his clothing who seems to have come with the restaurant --- Clifford.

He is mean to Veronica from the beginning. He keeps on telling her that he wishes that she would go home even as he sweeps floors and does garden work for her parents. When he runs into her investigating noises at night, he rudely shoves her back into her room and even locks the door. He tells her to mind her own business.Matters become even more mysterious when Veronica follows Clifford out onto the beach at night.

She catches him meeting with the same blond-haired girl that Veronica saw pictured in the stained glass window, the one who was calling her name. Stranger yet, the girl suddenly appears. She walks right out of a wave on a night when no human could survive a swim in the ocean.Apparently Clifford has other enemies, too. Veronica meets the other islanders, a gang of kids her own age, who live on the rocky promontory that juts out into the sea where the volcano is located. They don’t want her to have to stay locked up all day at the Sanctuary Grill with Clifford.

But it is when they take her out on the town and decide to show Veronica a good time, that the plot reaches its “explosive” climax. The volcano has a few things to say about it, too.
