Come home...if you dare!
Doreen Addison wants nothing more than to provide a good life for her six foster children. When they are forced to move out of their home, Doreen is thrilled to find the perfect house for a bargain price. But is the new Addison House too good to be true? Their reclusive neighbor hints at the house’s grisly history and warns they’ll regret the move, but it's just what Doreen was looking for: a big, inexpensive, and secluded refuge for the children.
Almost from the start, unexplained accidents and strange occurrences plague Doreen and her charges. And some of the children are showing disturbing personality changes. Why is 13-year-old Karen, who loves make up and the latest fashions, suddenly insisting such things are “evil”? What made 10-year-old Randy turn from a happy, rambunctious little boy into a child obsessed with only the darkest passages of the Bible? And who is the mysterious, beautiful woman in black that only 5-year-old Cindy seems to see?
To complicate matters, Doreen can’t help falling for her handsome neighbor, Brendan Delacorte, who offers protection and always seems to be there when Doreen needs him. Can he help her solve the mystery of Addison House, before unseen evil destroys all that Doreen has loved and worked for? The only thing that can save them from destruction is to discover the secret of the woman in black who commands them all to COME DOWN INTO DARKNESS.

if it not working
creepy and thrilling at each turn
Good book overall. This book was originally titled addison house back in the 80 or 90's. Dont know why title was changed. It was a little slow at times but a scary ghost story. I think it is more suited for young adults or teens.
This reads like a young girl's romance novel. Childish whimpering stupid female lead who could not possibly have taken care of six children. Best description is trash.
