Genre: Paranormal Suspense
A disturbance at her neighbor’s house piques Eilida’s curiosity. What she discovers is so shocking it sends her running through the mountainous woods during a thunderstorm. She slips on the wet ground, plummets down Mount Wilde, and slams into a large boulder beside River Freedom. Eilida is transported to Lyden, where Sunshine, a receptionist at the local paper becomes engrossed in her story. The further Sunshine delves into Eilida’s life the more entangled their lives become. Paranormal events, frightening dreams, and terror filled memories draw the women together into an unthinkable web of horror.
Although she’s supposed to meet up with friends, Eilida’s curiosity leads her to investigate a disturbance at her neighbors house. But what she finds there shocks her so much that she runs out into a thunderstorm and gets herself injured. Partially told from EIlida’s POV and from Sunshine’s POV, a receptionist at the local paper who becomes interested in Eilida’s story, the book tells a story of paranormal suspense that combines originality and great writing into a surprisingly scary and engaging story.
I liked Sunshine, and Eilida, and the focus on fear of storms. As I’m afraid of storms too, this connected well with me. The story is fast-paced and I read it in one sitting.
