“Mommy, the skelegan head wants to talk to you.”

Recently divorced mom of two Dena has come to rest in Benevolence, a small town where she thinks she can find peace after the turmoil of leaving behind her husband and trying to make a life of her own with her two daughters. Unfortunately she's run straight into Benevolence's most historically interesting--and haunted--house.

Everyone in the town seems eager to tell Dena and her older daughter the tangled tale of murder, lynching, witchery and hauntings. But Dena wants nothing more than to make a clean break from her troubled past and enjoy her luck in finding a lovely home. The house's invisible occupants also want Dena to stay and make her and her two daughters part of their own story.

A classically creepy ghost story, Seven Days in Benevolence is a fast paced, tantalizingly horrific novella that's perfect for hungry ghost story fans. The short length makes it an easy read, and its dazzling climax will leave readers breathless.
