SALEM. WILL HISTORY REPEAT ITSELF?

Three centuries after the infamous witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts, Helen Evett, owner of a prestigious preschool there, finds her family and life's work threatened because of her sudden desire to protect the three-year-old daughter of a man who knows a lot about finance but little about fathering. Helen's feelings toward Katie's dad are decidedly mixed, and it will take more than knocks in the night, perfumed air, and bone-chilling cold to convince her otherwise.

Nathaniel Byrne is just as ambivalent about Helen. Recently widowed, tormented by the circumstances, and at sea about being a single parent, Nat is not inclined to hand over his daughter to this singularly pushy woman. The London-trained nanny who cares for his daughter agrees.

And the nanny herself? Peaches Bartholemew is as clever as she is beautiful, as efficient as she is soothing. Peaches can do anything. The trick, for Nat's dead wife, will be to keep her from doing it.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Full of charm and wit, Stockenberg's latest (following Time After Time) is truly enthralling."
Library Journal
"A pair of well-matched protagonists, a precocious three-year-old, a relentless ghost, and a conniving nanny combine to produce an engrossing, well-written story that should keep readers captivated to the end."
Romantic Times
�When it comes to unique, eerie and engrossing tales of supernatural suspense, author Antoinette Stockenberg is in a league of her own. BEYOND MIDNIGHT is a gripping and chilling page-turner outlining two families� courageous battle against an insidious evil with a charming face. Outstanding reading!�
Milwaukee Journal
"BEYOND MIDNIGHT" has a terrific plot, a wicked villain, and a sexy hero. But the novel ventures beyond sheer entertainment, and it is easy to see why Stockenberg's work has won such acclaim. The theme and setting create a terrifying scenario: a chilling correspondence between the events of Salem's witch-hunting hysteria and contemporary allegations of ritualistic abuse in preschools. A good read that makes you think. Comes awfully close to�dare I say it?�literature."
Gothic Journal
"Entertaining and fun. BEYOND MIDNIGHT'S shining strengths are its insights into parenting and relationship issues, its brazen humor, its writing style, its to-die-for hero, its cunning villain, and its intriguing supernatural overtones."
