Debra Hamilton’s husband moves her into a hundred-year-old farmhouse on fifty-three acres of blacklisted real estate property. Floorboards creak when she’s all alone—her husband says it’s the wind outside. Objects appear and disappear—her husband says it’s her forgetfulness. Having to live here she is daunted by her genetic link to mental illness.
Julie, a neighbor who befriends her, realizes she has a stalker watching, waiting, when perverted anonymous letters arrive in the mail that cause a rift in Julie’s unstable marriage. Their plots merge as their friendship grows to create a rich and satisfying mystery thriller story. “The story was inspired by my 100-year-old farmhouse where the neighbors say it’s haunted. “All the letters in the novel are actual letters from the man who stalked me. It’s been twenty-plus years and he remains anonymous to this day.” Christine Benedict, author of Anonymous.
