Shelly 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…

Atmospheric and infused with supernatural elements, Hite’s novel is a rich and wonderfully eerie tale that will stay with you long after the story ends?


I don't think I need words to describe how amazing this synopsis sounds. I'm not usually one to read stories that revolve around a haunting-but I'm more so terrified of the Stephen King types. This book sounds like a perfect starting place to help me kick that fear. This also has a sentimental link for me, my own aunt died during childbirth 5 years ago. I'm interested to see where this storyline takes me, the imagery already sounds stunning.
