A haunting tale of the timeless struggle against perverted faith, unscrupulous deception, madness, and murder.
According to legend, somewhere beneath the 50,000 acres of man-made Lake Murray, lie the graves of the only accused witches ever executed in South Carolina. Kate Martin has become obsessed with this legend of her beloved home. Or so her friends and family believe.
When the lake is drawn down to repair the dam, all of the buried secrets begin to rise. In a tale of testing faithperverted, pure, profane, and piousKate struggles to discover the truth behind a blighted belief in the supernatural while she deals with her own doubts and demons of a very mortal sort. As she peels away the layers of fantasy surrounding the myth of madness and mayhem, she is drawn dangerously deep into a tale of heresy and evil until twenty-first and eighteenth century begin to blur and the hiss becomes a din of monsters.
The work of Susannah Wilds has been called sensitive, insightful, and exuberant. With Forked Tongue is riveting.
