Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Creepy and atmospheric, Xe Sands's narration perfectly matches this ethereal yet harrowing story. Vera Crowder is told to come home to the house she grew up in by her dying mother, Daphne. They have a complicated, tense relationship tied to her father's crimes and the horrors hidden in that same house. Vera must overcome these unresolved issues and unexpected memories of her childhood. Sands creates chilling tension as she transitions between the present-day story--filled with a number of multidimensional characters--and Vera's childhood. The story starts slowly and can seem a bit disconnected at times, but it eventually comes together. With its dramatic twists, listeners will be left feeling unsettled by this gripping story.
