About The Author
The author has us traveling in two periods of time, a century apart, and yet really tied together as we learn.
Don’t get too comfortable and you might want to keep the lights on, this book is scary in more ways than one, both in the past and also in the present.
The revelations here are going to make you cringe and you wonder what happenings in California have to do with Wisconsin, but unexplained things are going on, and you wonder why, and boy do surprises abound here, most I never saw coming.
A first novel for this author, and I cannot wait for more, she had me from the beginning for this real page turner of a read.
Come along with our current day Kate buys a home sight unseen, it doesn’t even have a door, and see how it connects to early 1900’s Ivy, you won’t be disappointed.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
