She called for her sister.

Someone else answered...

Sisters Angela and Lillian Tremblay return to Summerhaven, New Hampshire, after sixteen years away, ready to face the secrets and half-forgotten memories from their childhood.

One day, Angela comes home to find Lillian dead in the basement of their family home. The police are convinced it's a suicide, but the town's residents know better. The stories about the house tell of an ancient woman who killed children and bathed in their blood. A woman known as the Summerhaven Witch.

When a local psychic helps a dead girl connect Angela's past to her present, the truth threatens to push Angela over the edge.

Memories can scar. Secrets can kill.

The only thing left is for Angela to speak the words that will allow her to talk with the dead.

She must speak the incantations.

This is the debut horror novelette by author Erik Straker.

The cover for this book was a wonderful choice and ignited sparks of fear before ever opening it. The main character Angela is brilliant! She is strong and smart and ready to do what it takes to solve the mystery surrounding her sister death. The prologue to this book was haunting and had me excited to delve right in. The writing style for this book was a bit different in its format but it was brilliant and i adored it. This book was as amazing as it was haunting. I hope to see more from this author. 5 stars from me. Thank you Erik Straker and LibraryThing for this book in exchange for my honest review.
