About the Author

Emily Arsenault is also the author of The Evening Spider, The Broken Teaglass, In Search of the Rose Notes, Miss Me When I'm Gone, What Strange Creatures, and the young adult novel The Leaf Reader. She lives in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, with her husband and daughter.


"a good old-fashioned gothic novel with a modern twist; a tale of dusty old journals, creaky houses, and ghostly whispers [...] Arsenault never strays from the task at hand, which is to keep you up all night with a light burning until you reach the surprising end."--Melanie Benjamin, New York Times best-selling author of THE AVIATOR'S WIFE and THE SWANS OF FIFTH AVENUE
"an emotionally satisfying ending. Abby's and Frances' mirrored stories are the stars of the show... A striking reminder that today's domesticity is not too far removed from that of the 19th century."--Kirkus Reviews
"From the opening pages, it's clear that this will be a haunting novel... An engrossing, suspenseful mix of historical fiction and contemporary thriller, with some unexpected twists and wisdom: "We have to learn to live with our ghosts.""--Booklist
"intricately plotted... Passionate and suspenseful, it is the author's best book to date. [...] That ending is as satisfying as the story is engrossing, taking the reader beyond the fun of a breathtaking tale to an important lesson about dealing honestly with one's own past and present."--The
"Arsenault deftly shifts among three perspectives in this exquisitely creepy blend of historical true crime and modern ghost story [...] Arsenualt's gift for letting readers feel the characters' anguish from the inside while showing their irrational strangeness from the outside makes for terror that sticks."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
