McMahon (The One I Left Behind, 2013) deftly blends elements of horror and the supernatural in her latest spine-tingling tale. One morning, 19-year-old Ruthie awakes in her family's Vermont farmhouse to find her mother gone. A search of the house turns up a copy of Sara Harrison Shea's diary. Sara was West Hall's most notorious resident--a woman who was found brutally murdered in 1908, just months after the death of her daughter. Ruthie knows that somehow Sara's fate is tied into her mother's disappearance. Can she stop history from repeating itself? Shivery fun.
