Overview

It's a New York City architect's dream come true. Amy Armstrong has just inherited the ruins of a three-hundred-year-old stone farmhouse. But there's a reason she finds the property in pieces when she arrives in Covenant Parish, Pennsylvania to claim it.

If you love Shirley Jackson's The Lottery, Stephen King's The Shining, or Ira Levin's Rosemary's Baby, don't miss this harrowing tale of family, farmland, and fear - Haven House.

Amy Armstrong is a pregnant Manhattan architect who inherits the ultimate restoration project-a 300-year-old farmhouse. She views the project and the rural town as a chance to start anew after a terrible assault. But there is some information about this inheritance, this property, and even the baby she's carrying that the townspeople don't want her to know.

Something evil, and on a very grand scale.

Editorial Reviews

MJ B.
"The ending is so unique and compelling that I re-read HAVEN HOUSE in its entirety to experience the hidden richness."
Garry Puffer
"Once I got started it was hard to stop, and I read it in about three gulps....This novel would make a very good horror film. Kudos to Mr. Connelly for this one."
Arrow Smith
"For those interested in horror and paranormal this book is a must read."

Meet the Author

Stuart Connelly: I learned to write before I could crawl, and I'm still not sure which is the more useful skill.

Drawn to the seamier side of human nature, my focus in fiction has always been thrillers, where my feelings of betrayal, revenge, bitterness, greed, paranoia, jealousy and madness find a socially acceptable display case.

Though I believe the drawing power of fiction comes from a universal human craving for clarity, justice, and fairness (things that seem to exist outside our imagination sparingly and only accidentally), I haven't yet managed to write a happy ending.

Despite all this, I still can't imagine doing anything else with my life.

A native of Upstate New York, I now divide my time between Manhattan and rural Pennsylvania, which of course is not as good as multiplying it.

    Don't waste your money

    Horrible. I thought it supposed to be a good haunted house book. The ones that scare the wits out of you. But to me it seems to me the author borrowed the story from "Rosemary's Baby" and revamped it slightly. Don't bother to read it.
