Widow Kaine Prescott's snap decision to buy an old, abandoned house in her grandfather's Wisconson hometown quickly turns into a nightmare. Malevolence haunts its hallways, and Kaine learns that Foster Hill House has a tainted past, including a murder at the turn of the 20th century. In 1906, Ivy Thorpe discovers the body of a recently pregnant girl stuffed into the base of a tree. Obsessed with finding both the missing baby and the murderer, Ivy puts herself directly in the crosshairs of the killer. Headed by two strong female protagonists, Wright's debut is a lushly detailed time-slip novel that transitions seamlessly between past and present, leading to the revelation of some surprising family secrets that someone would kill to protect.
VERDICT Readers who enjoy Colleen Coble and Dani Pettrey will be intrigued by this suspenseful mystery.
