Debra Hamilton’s husband moves her into a hundred-year-old farmhouse on fifty-three acres surrounded by farmland. Floorboards creak when she’s all alone - her husband says it’s the wind outside. Objects appear and disappear - her husband says it’s her forgetfulness. Having to live here she is daunted by her genetic link to mental illness.
“In the thicket as tall as her, she heard something, someone, rustling and crackling the dead underbrush. Clutching the rifle, the wooden stock against her cheek, she took her rightful place as her mother’s daughter, shaking quaking inside, not because she was so scared – but because it felt so right.”
Julie, a neighbor who befriends her, realizes she has a stalker when perverted anonymous letters arrive in the mail that cause a rift in Julie’s unstable marriage. Their plots merge as their friendship grows and their fears escalate.
