From the author of the
“wonderfully crafted” (San Francisco Book Review) Ghost on Black
Mountain comes a haunting gothic novel set in the Depression-era South
about two young women who form an unlikely alliance when the spirit of a dead
woman takes up residence in their home.
Parker, a sixteen-year-old servant who works for the tyrannical Pastor Dobbins
and his family, has had the gift of sight for as long as she can remember.
She’s grown accustomed to coexisting with the spirits of the dead who roam
Black Mountain, telling Shelly their stories and warning her of the dangers
that surround her. When the ghost of Arleen Brown, a poor woman who died on the
mountain during childbirth five years earlier, begins to pursue Pastor’s
daughter Faith—hell-bent on revealing a terrible secret that she took to her
grave—Shelly is the only person that can help her. The two young women soon
find themselves tangled up in a web of secrets and lies that takes them from
Black Mountain to the murky saltwater marshes of Georgia, uncovering
long-hidden truths that put their own lives in danger.
