1996: A man oversees the draining of a TVA lake in Eastern Tennessee, uncovering the sunken town of Remick. 1936: His mother documents the evacuation of Remick. But not everyone got out before the water came.
At the cusp of WW I, through letters, telegrams, newspaper clippings, and diaries the story of an ancient evil rebirthing into the world unfolds. As Mina Harker approaches her "Silent Passage," she and her rapidly maturing son transition . . .
The opening chapter is exceptionally well written and curiously intriguing.
A woman lives with her strange family on a mysterious island that has the power to bend the will of its inhabitants to its own, and she must discover whether it is for her or against her as she finds herself driven toward a bloody fate.
A great premise backed up by great writing. I hope to see this in print someday soon.
