Seventeen-year-old Michelle, responding to an inner voice she thinks of as her grandmother, interrupts her brother's wedding. She says she knows "just cause" why the two should not be married. The bride, she says, "is going to eat him." When her mother hides her away on an island in Lake Superior rather than face her obvious disturbance, Michelle's delusions grow, and the story weaves in and out of her disturbed mind, leading to a terrifying—and redemptive—climax.
