Waking the Wilderness: Where Tragedy Sparks Obsessionby Clayton T. King
New Year's Eve on the outskirts of a small logging town deep within the North Cascade Mountains, Lina Cousins, a struggling teenage girl, prepares to meet her boyfriend, Luke, for a special celebration. When a phone call changes their plans at the last minute, it unexpectedly sets in motion a spiraling web of deception, confrontation, and obsession-with devastating consequences.
Three years after the resulting tragedy, life's ongoing demands have dulled the painful memories... until outsiders buy an abandoned cabin to build their wilderness dream. As the Renshaws' new home rises, so does Lina's buried past.
When the Renshaws' throw a New Year's Eve party at the recently completed cabin, everyone eagerly awaits the new day. But as the night advances and events unfold, they all will come to fear the stroke of midnight. Can they hold on to a hard-fought second chance at love and family-or does a darker fate await?
To find out, they each must first survive the night....
