*Warning: Mature content. 

It's not just the house that's haunted. 

Harmony Wolcott has lived her entire life on the fringe, wishing more often than not that she could end it all. After a failed suicide attempt heightens her visibility in the Child Protective Services system, she has no choice but to hide the details about the home life she's run from. 

Adam, Harmony's formerly homeless boyfriend, has learned to fend for himself. Despite a past he's reluctant to talk about, Adam has risen above his circumstances and is trying to get Harmony to do the same. 

Only loving someone so damaged isn't easy. 

A recurring nightmare chips away at Harmony's facade of normalcy, reminding her of a time hidden so deep in her memory that it blurs the line between dream and reality. Convinced the nightmares are an otherworldly attempt at telling her something, Harmony employs the help of a spirit board and her best friend, Brea, to uncover a secret she's kept, even from herself. 

Brea, who is trying to piece together the mystery of why her father walked out on their family fourteen years earlier, knows it's something to do with Harmony's mother and a night no one is willing to talk about. 

A tragic discovery threatens to unravel Harmony's patched together life, dragging both Brea and Adam down with her and proving, with devastating consequences, that sometimes the past is better left buried.

My husband and I took a "daycation" to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls since neither of us had ever been. Embassy Suites bills itself as the newest hotel on the falls with the best view. I'll grant them the view. We stayed on the 21st floor, in an 'upgraded' fireplace and jacuzzi tub suite. The concierge touted the excellent view, for an extra $30.00/night. We were only staying one night, so why not? Upon entering the room, I almost asked to be moved. The carpet threads were ripped up in spots, and worn in a way that made me wonder if the hotel was 'pet friendly'. I didn't even want to take off my shoes. Two chairs faced out over the falls and were in equally poor repair. They were matted, stained, and dirty. My husband offered to cover one with a blanket, but I couldn't get comfortable sitting there. I looked out from the bed, which seemed pretty safe. Valet parking, as I see it, is a repeated complaint, and I'll echo that. You have NO CHOICE but to valet. The difference between $20-$30 a night is whether or not your car comes back when you want it, and apparently the $20 a night has your car possibly off-site? Obviously I paid the $30, but I was already in over $300 a night for the room. I have no idea why. The view only goes so far. I've NEVER stayed in a supposed 'luxury' hotel who nickel and dimed their customers more than Embassy Suites. Paid wi-fi? Really? For around $350 a night, I expect wi-fi to be included. As we're American, our cell phone service was greatly limited and wi-fi was our only connection to home. You want it at Embassy Suites, you're paying $10.00/per night/ PER DEVICE. What a rip. Customer service and hygiene were lacking and besides the view, which is only exciting for just so long, the stay was not up to par. I won't be back, and further, I'll never stay in another Embassy Suites/Hilton again. Go to the Radisson. They don't charge for wi-fi.

I'm going to go ahead and say that the Saratoga Springs Empire Vision is a crap shoot. Some people there are caring and helpful. Others, downright rude and nasty. My husband had a visit there recently and as a first time contact lens wearer, had issues. The store and Empire Vision corporate take the position that it's okay to let patients walk out of the office without examining the fit of contact lenses prescribed to someone who has never worn them. As someone who has worked in ophthalmology in the past, I find that to be irresponsible. Ill-fitting contact lenses can cause damage and while I'll agree that an eye could appear irritated after "contact lens training", there should still be a cursory look. Needless to say, that's the least of our issues. My husband called after several days of discomfort to talk about options and no one returned his call. Again, new wearer with problems. You don't call back? So I called. I have worn the same lenses with the same prescription for years. For this scenario, Empire Vision is fine. I called to see if my order came in and to talk to the manager about my husband's concerns (he was at work and frustrated about not being called back). The manager really didn't seem to care about my complaint at all. Customer service is incredibly lacking here. Rule #1, you LISTEN to customers complaints, especially if you are a manager, and you try to come up with a resolution. I started off nice, but admit I lost my patience after repeated terminal holding and an "I don't have time for you" and "I don't care about your problem" attitude. She just kept telling me she needed my number and someone would call back. This isn't my first run-in with this place, but it will be my last. All Empire Vision seems interested in doing is saying how they've done nothing wrong. I disagree. We're ironing out this problem because we've already paid and, at this point, it's more work to start over, but next year we're definitely going ANYWHERE else. There's a reason this place has an online 2-star rating. Your eyes are too important to have them cared for by a place that just doesn't care. It's a shame, too, because the optometrist we saw today actually cared and did her best to address my husband's discomfort and acuity. Like I said, it's a crap shoot. I'm just tired of getting burned.
