The daughter of an Evangelical preacher, Essie Hicks has grown up on reality television.

An eye-opening novel in this age of the Kardashian's and Dugger's that will cause the reader to question if reality TV is in fact real. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner

Idlewild Hall, the abandoned, rotting and perhaps haunted Vermont boarding school for "troubled girls" is the backdrop for this superbly crafted mystery. Past and present crimes weave together to create an eerie and unsettling read that is impossible to put down. I loved this book!!! ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner

This eerie tale of a newly widowed woman sent to live at her late husband's estate is Victorian Gothic at its best. Reminiscent of The Woman In Black and The Turn of the Screw, this book is best read with all the doors locked and lights on. Delightfully creepy. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner
