Macy needs a break. Her parents are dead and a moody trespasser has set up camp on the property she has inherited. When the stranger confesses himself to be an ageless sea-god and tells Macy she has been guarding a secret she never knew existed, her once simple life takes a drastic turn. Just when she thinks it can't get any stranger, a back door to the Underworld opens up and it's time to run like hell.
Mythology and contemporary life collide as this fast-paced novel explodes and dark forces tracking Macy surface to capture her. In the transatlantic chase that follows, she learns of her forgotten past and a centuries-old connection to the sea-god who helps her escape. A tragic miscalculation derails Macy and in a moment of self-sacrifice she ends up where it all began, trapped in the Underworld.
Has she learned enough about her past to forge a meaningful future? Utterly alone, she realizes that to gain real freedom, she must reject her assigned place in history and in doing so risk everything. Events challenge her whilst she comes to grips with her legacy and decides what she wants in life.

Eleusis by Genevieve Fairbrother is one-of-a-kind contemporary paranormal adventure novel that narrates a unique perspective on women and relationships using the life of one immortal woman moving through time.
Read an excerpt:
High above them on the wooded hillside, the seeker scrambled to its feet, tense and alert. The wind ruffled its black fur. It stretched stiffly. Something was different. It sniffed the air again to be sure. It had been here so long, its purpose almost forgotten, but the scent, stronger now, stirred the creature, and it quivered with excitement. A low growl rumbled in its chest. Eager to alert the collector, it turned and quietly picked its way along the path through the trees to the opening in the rocks. It paused one last time to taste the air swirling up from the falls, then ducked its shaggy head through the entrance, shifted its shape, and slipped through the opening in the earth. The seeker was positive. The memory, although old, was strong.
She was back.
