Prologue: a pregnant cave woman becomes the sole survivor of her clan and then immediately gives birth. While distracted, a snake threatens the baby and the mother protects it, but at the cost of a fatal bite. Another woman then claims the orphan. Present day: Jarden, Texas, has become known as Miracle, where zero departures took place. The Murphys, John, Erika, Michael, and Evie, are town staples. John is a fireman, Erika is a doctor. However, not all is as it seems with the enigmatic family. John brutally punishes those who believe the town to be special; Erika is partially deaf and unhappily married; and Evie suffers from epilepsy. The Murphys receive new neighbors in Kevin, Nora, Jill, and Lily. That night, three local girls vanish into thin air, one of them being Evie.
