MADNESS, SECRETS, AND THE LENGTHS WE’LL GO TO KEEP THEM BURIED

Wheeler, Arkansas, 1907

When her father descends into madness, Verity Pruitt and her little sister Lilah find themselves uprooted from New York, on an orphan train to rural Arkansas.

In Wheeler, Lilah is quickly adopted by the town’s beloved schoolteacher—but Verity is not. Willing to do anything to stay close, she pawns herself off as a farmhand, but even charming farm boy Abel Atchley can’t completely distract her from the sense that something is not quite right in this little town. Strange local superstitions abound, especially about the eerie old well at the center of the forest. The woods play tricks, unleashing heavy fog and bone-chilling cold…and sometimes visions of things that aren’t there.

But for Verity, perhaps most unsettling of all is the revelation that her own parents have a scandalous history in this very town. And as she tries to unearth the past, sinister secrets come with it—secrets that someone will go to violent lengths to protect.

Preorder Eventide

Eventide is my favorite sort of book: a pitch-perfect historical ghost story, creepy and beautiful in equal measure. The evocative, richly drawn setting is surely rife with more dark tales to tell. 

Elizabeth Bunce, author of A Curse as Dark as Gold

. . . A solid choice for readers seeking historical fiction with paranormal elements. The plot moves at a suspenseful pace . . .
