This novel is based on the rural mountain community where I moved two years ago. When I first arrived, I noticed a lot of farmers owned goats, but the livestock seemed to disappear practically overnight. Combined with some research on obscure Appalachian Baptist religions, I came up with a few interesting characters and planted some strange seeds. And up sprouted the novel. I hope you get as much pleasure out of reading it as I did writing it.From the Back Cover:
Katy Logan was looking for a fresh start when she uprooted herself and her daughter Jett from the stresses of city life to settle in the Blue Ridge Mountain town of Solom. With a new marriage and a rural lifestyle to embrace, Katy is determined to make the most of this second chance, for her sake and Jett's. Yet things is Solom aren't as simple as they seem--starting with her husband, Gordon, and his strange, secretive family.
Jett understands her mother's reasons for dragging them out to the sticks--although it's harder to tolerate her new stepfather, with his weird stories of a blood-drinking scarecrow and a long-gone family member who may have been murdered. But Katy and Jett are about to learn that there's more to this place than even the legends tell. As Katy nurses a growing obsession with Gordon's first wife, Jett senses something very wrong permeating the farm. Something wicked has been growing there, awaiting its master. And with his arrival, a bloody harvest will begin...
