The Chandler family has lived in Key West for over 30 years in a 19th-century lighthouse with a dark history, the Maiden Tower. The youngest of three sisters, Ivy is a turbulent artist who hides away at the top of the tower battling unknown demons while her parents run a bed and breakfast below. Her older twin sisters, Linnea and Delphina, have grown apart over the past 15 years as Delphina settled in Key West and Linnea drifted across the country.

Throughout it, all the sisters struggle with their conflicting emotions and familial ties. The dysfunctional relationships come to a head as a powerful storm drives the Chandlers from their home. When the unimaginable happens to their family, will the sisters move forward despite tragedy?

The idyllic setting is the perfect backdrop for the dramatic, romantic, and painful story of three sisters.
