A teen summer romance in New England has disastrous consequences when the daring son of a conservative senator forms a secret relationship with the isolated daughter of a reclusive scientist. A modern retelling of the classic tale 'Rapunzel.'
Hermes McCaffrey is sick and tired of sharing his life with his father’s political career and his overbearing older brothers. So during his family’s vacation in New England, when he meets Raphaela, a lovely and brilliant girl dreaming in a hidden tower, is it surprising that he wants her all to himself?
But visiting Raphaela is dangerous, and not just because of her mother’s paranoia about strangers, or the mansion’s sinister caretaker. When Hermes decides to go too far, the results are devastating for Raphaela ... and for Hermes.
What happens when falling in love leads to falling into sin? Can sex destroy love? And when you do fall from grace, is there any way back?
