With a baby on the way and a brand new house, it seems Ginny and her husband, Sean, are on their way to a fresh start. But strange occurrences and financial strain seem determined to keep Ginny and Sean stuck in the past. Ginny begins to believe the house may be haunted…or that her husband might be trying to trick her into thinking so. As Ginny researches the house’s former owner and the tragedy that happened there, it becomes clearer than ever that something is in the house with them. The question is, who…or what…is it?


In this superb, eerie tale, Hart draws on several conventions of the horror genre — a possibly haunted house, an unsolved kidnapping, a protagonist who’s fraying at the edges. But rather than soaking her story in dramatic displays of gore, Hart takes these elements and develops a restrained, quietly macabre atmosphere that is chilling and effective. Bringing her signature unflinching honesty about relationships to these time-worn tropes, she delves into the animus that can simmer under the surface, in the form of little secrets, between husbands and wives, parents and children." -- RT Book Reviews
