There was something very dark about Kitrina Katim's part of the Big Thicket. It had taken Libby, one of Kit's best friends, in the dark of night when Kit was just a girl. Kit couldn't imagine leaving her life and her best friends, the Sisterhood of Cemetery Road. But leave them, she did. And she did not return until ten years later when she was forced back to sell her parent's house.
Nothing had changed, including Mad Maddie McPhearson, who lived down the road, always sitting on her front porch, always trying to make Kit's life miserable. Miss Maddie, an angry, elderly woman, owned Bellewood, an old plantation house that was crumbling around her. Kit's attempts at kindness only fed the old woman's hatred. But Kit didn't understand why. Not then anyway.
It was that hatred that awakened dark voices in the Thicket and threatening figures that terrified Kit. Was it Libby? Had she come back to them? Or was it something else, something horrifyingly familiar?
Would it be the Sisterhood, or handsome Colton and his brother, Jackson, who would come to Kit's side when the time came to do battle with the dark forces that were slowly overtaking the Big Thicket?
Or would Kit have to settle old scores all by herself?
