Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Meet Mary Coles and her husband, Graham, who move into a cottage with an orchard and farm fields, and Eliza, who lived in the house 150 years before and recognized the evil that dwelt there. Elizabeth Knowelden narrates Mary's story, and Lucinda Clare, Eliza's. The storylines intertwine as each meets a red-haired man who is at the center of the evil. Without pause, the story shifts back and forth several times within each chapter, with the time frame being distinguished only by a change in narrator. These abrupt shifts break the tension and the building horror. As the story moves around in time, Mary and Eliza grapple with the evil man's growing hold on them, and Knowelden and Clare manage to keep the listener engaged in a chilling tale.
