Overview

Lush, a deceptively tranquil, the secluded island basks in splendid isolation off the South Carolina coast—as does the Devereaux mansion, a once-great plantation house now crumbling amidst the ancient oaks. Now, for the first time in two decades, Kevin Devereaux has returned here with his wife and children to visit Kevin's hated, and frightening mother. She said she was ill—but is that really why the old woman has summoned the son she has not seen in so many years? Suddenly, horribly, one of the Devereauxs is going to die. And now, all the dark secrets of this once-proud family will emerge to wrap their evil around the unsuspecting children. Until, in the shadowed corridors and dust-covered rooms of the decaying old house, they learn the true terror of The Unloved.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At the request of his dying mother, Kevin returns to his childhood home with his wife, Anne, and their children, but the brief visit turns into a nightmare when his mother's death is followed by seven more-including the demise of Anne. Was her death really accidental? Is the old homestead cursed? Is Kevin's sister insane? Using a wide variation in tone and pitch, reader Sandra Burr adds to the ambiance created by Saul's riveting and descriptive tale by conveying the distinctive voices of a wide cast of characters. Burr's speech is accent free with the exception of a Southern drawl for specific players, and her delivery is paced to match each character's mood and personality. Professionally produced, with no distracting background noises. Though expensive, this program will be in demand by horror and Saul fans; recommended for public libraries.-Laurie Selwyn, Grayson Cty.
