Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can't even admot to themselves. Amid all the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be. Frances Welty, the formerly bestselling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House and is immediately intrigued by her fellow guests, including the charismatic owner and director. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn't even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer--or should she run while she still can? And it's not long before every guest is asking the same question. -- adapted from summary on book jacket.

Who could guess that nine perfect strangers who up and decide to go on a "wellness retreat" would come with extra baggage? This book slowly and enticingly unpacks it all as the guests of Tranquillum House are led by Masha, an expert in physical, mental, and emotional transformation, on a path towards ultimate enlightenment. But their fascinating host has some secrets of her own and that's when things get really twisty.

This book has a little bit of everything, which makes sense with so many key players. It's deep, poignant, creepy, funny, suspenseful. By the end was I trying to nail down what this book is *really* about and I landed on human connection and how we each are affected by tragedy, and conversely, love.
