In 1918 Montana, the Spanish Flu, severe drought, and a myriad of strange phenomena plague the land. Fires rise in the night and burn down houses where entire families are trapped to die. Can one young mother protect her children from the fevers and the terrors while she unravels the mystery of the strange Blue Lights?
Millions of threads so thin as to be invisible, so vaporous as to be ductile, drift through the classroom emitting a chill, and leaving a sense of unease. Hidden deep in their cloaks, the Blue Lights analyze the odors that cling to the individual cells of every child, from the top of each little head to the bottom of their ticklish feet and every dark secret place in-between, from their gathering brains to their blood-soaked spleens. One girl feels dizzy; one boy throws up.
