Can a restless, aching heart ever be satisfied? Owen Eccle is bent on finding out. Except Owen's heart seems cursed with ache. Deformed and orphaned before the age of nine, his chances to find self-fulfillment seem slim. At eighteen he finds himself still living in an orphanage, dragging along a twisted foot, and wrestling with the incessant ache within his own heart. An ache he describes as god-awful. An ache that at first will only be satisfied by fighting and later by his true love, Clara Keil. Just when Owen is about to leave for the summer to work at Camp Chimney Ridge, a summer kids camp that Clara's dad owns in the foothills of North Carolina, his mysterious childhood friend, Tay, presents him with a plan. As Tay describes it, "a simple plan" involving kidnapping and promising Owen a life together with Clara. Is this Owen's only shot at happiness? Is Owen willing to commit the crime to be with Clara?
