From the Publisher:
There are terrible secrets from generations past buried at Maidenwood. Medical student Julie Newcomb has returned to her family's decaying plantation -- the site of so many painful childhood memories -- to tend to her tyrannical grandmother, felled by a stroke. The fire of malevolence still burns in the cruel, despotic matriarch's eyes -- yet, for Julie, a faint spark of redemption and second chances flickers in this hated, haunted place. But her hope -- and her life -- are seriously threatened by a nightmare reborn... and by the grim discovery on the lonely road to Maidenwood of the earth-browned skeletons of a mother and child.
