"Tantalizing, suspenseful, and satisfying."Phyllis Whitney.
Sarah Hoving has a happy marriage and a successful beekeeping business in the quiet town of Taconic Hills. But her satisfying life is about to unravel. She was only four when her mother left town. Yet now Sarah's mind is filled with terrifying memories: a bloody pitchfork, a child's scream, her mother's frightened face. Why did her mother run away, and what does her father know that he's not telling? The past would not stay buried. Sarah is determined to find the truth, but the answers could be more terrible than she ever dreamed. Talked into taking part in a pageant celebrating Taconic Hill's bicentennial, she soon discovers that the past has taken on a horrifying life of its own. And as the murderous events of two hundred years ago begin to recur, she must face the fact that she may be the killer's next victim. . . or even the killer herself.
