If you were given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to save yourself, wouldn't you take it? Even if it cost you everything....
Once a century, for only six days, the bay around a small Washington island glows like a water-bound aurora. Dr. Rachel Bell, a scientist studying The 100 Year Miracle and the tiny sea creatures that create it, knows a secret about the phenomenon: the rare green water that inspired the myths and folklore of the native people who worshipped, consumed, and feared it may contain a power that could save Rachel's own life (and change the world). When Rachel connects with Harry and Tilda, a divorced couple cohabiting once again as Harry enters the last stages of a neurological disease, Harry is pulled into Rachel's obsession and hope.
The Miracle does things to people. Strange and mysterious things. And as these things begin to happen, Rachel has only six days to uncover and control the Miracle's secrets before the waters go dark for another hundred years.
