West Hall, Vermont, has always been a town of strange disappearances and old legends. The most mysterious is that of Sara Harrison Shea, who, in 1908, was found dead in the field behind her house just months after the tragic death of her daughter, Gertie. Now, in present day, nineteen-year-old Ruthie lives in Sara's farmhouse with her mother, Alice, and her younger sister, Fawn. Alice has always insisted that they live off the grid, a decision that suddenly proves perilous when Ruthie wakes up one morning to find that Alice has vanished without a trace. Searching for clues, she is startled to find a copy of Sara Harrison Shea's diary hidden beneath the floorboards of her mother's bedroom. As Ruthie gets sucked deeper into the mystery of Sara's fate, she discovers that she's not the only person who's desperately looking for someone that they've lost. But she may be the only one who can stop history from repeating itself.… (més)

    Mary Rose de Geoffrey Girard (sweetiegherkin)
    sweetiegherkin: Both books that explore deeper themes and emotions (grief, PTSD, etc.) while having an eerie vibe. Perfect for folks like me who like a little bit of creepy literature but not full-on horror.

Wow, good stuff! It creeps up on you. I slept with a light on after I had read half of it rather late, the scary closet in the book was too much for me. ( )

This book was different in mood and story than other books I have read for a very long time. Although it jumps back and forth in time from the backstory that takes place in Sara's diary to a present day disappearance, McMahon does a great job of melding the stories. Sara, who has lost several children and has a wonderful relationship with her 8 year daughter, but perhaps struggles in her marriage, watches her daughter follow her husband out into the snow. Hours later, when the husband returns, he is alone and completely unaware that his daughter had run out after him. The daughter is found dead in the bottom of a deep well. The darkness and grief that enfolds Sara is really the rest of the novel. The story streams on with an old hag, curses, insanity, and violence. It reminded me of early Stephen King books, where it was hard to draw the line between the real and the supernatural, between real and imagined fears. I will absolutely read more books by Jennifer McMahon. Maybe it's time to get back to horror. ( )

I used to never give up on a book, but recently I decided that life is too short to read books I don't enjoy. This was the first of those books, sorry it just wasn't for me. ( )

Don't let the three stars fool you. This is not a bad book. It is probably really good book for somebody. I just feel like I have read the story before. ( )
