It started with something Angela Toussaint's Gramma Marie did on July 4, 1929. Now the evil she fought is back and besetting Angela's family and friends. First to go is her son, Corey. Angela's whole life changes, but it's not until two years later, when she returns to her Gramma Marie's house—the "good house," as the people of the town call it—that she begins to realize the evil that has been awakened.

Now she must find a way to stop it before it destroys everyone close to her—and Angela herself. Hopefully, this will be with the help of her childhood sweetheart, if she can just convince him this supernatural evil is real.

This good, suspenseful horror story gives chills up the spine, yet isn't horribly gruesome. The intertwining of Gramma Marie's writings and Corey's flashback story adds a fascinating twist. Peeking at the ending is not advised. (Sep., 496 pp., $25.00)
