Dry leaves stirred around Noelle’s feet as she climbed the bowed and weathered steps onto the wraparound porch.


About the Book

“The world whipped around her in a dizzying funnel of lights and shouts, people in uniforms pressing in from all directions. Noelle sat motionless in the street, barely able to breathe. His little body was too still. Too broken.”


Noelle’s world shattered that night, like the pieces of headlights scattered across the dark street. There was no rebuilding her life around the grave of her child.

Adrift in her grief, Noelle finds herself drawn to an old house as rundown and weary as her spirit. She might not be able to mend her own brokenness, but maybe she can restore this abandoned structure to its former beauty. Determined, she throws herself into a renovation project with the unexpected help of a local. But she soon learns that her new home comes with a blood-stained history and a chilling reputation.

When she stumbles across a diary written by a child with a disturbing life, and a teenage girl vanishes from the village, clues leave Noelle wondering if her house might somehow be connected. Someone — or something — wants her gone, but she has no intention of leaving without discovering the truth.

About the Author

Jesus and laughter have brought C.C. Warrens through some very difficult times in life, and she weaves both into every story she writes, creating a world of breath-stealing intensity, laugh-out-loud humor, and a sparkle of hope. Writing has been a slowly blossoming dream inside her for most of her life until one day it spilled out onto the pages that would become her first published book.
If she’s not writing, she’s attempting to bake something–however catastrophic that might be–or she’s enjoying the beauty of the outdoors with her husband. One of the many things she’s learned since she started this journey is that the best way to write a book is to go on a long stroll with her husband. That is when the characters–from their backgrounds to the moments that make them laugh or bubble over with anger–come to life.

    My first line is from A Deep Divide by Kim Woodhouse:
    The sugary sweet cherry flavor burst on Emma Grace McMurray’s tongue and made her mouth water.

  2. This is such a beautiful cover! I’m reading The Mobster’s Daughter by Rachel Scott McDaniel: “September 28, 1923, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Snapping wind yanked at the letter in my hand, and my fingers tightened, the crisp edge biting into my palm.” Happy Weekend!
