Neal Carter wanted Wisconsin to be a new start. After Kaylee’s disappearance, he felt they needed it. With the dream of opening a new restaurant, Neal moves the family to the outskirts of Green Bay, Wisconsin and a new home along a picturesque rural road. Besides, it was too good of a bargain to pass up.

But all is not what it seems along the quiet, rustic stretch of Saint Augustines Road. Kathy, Neal’s wife, is experiencing unexplained problems. She sees, hears and smells what is not there. As the one year anniversary of Kaylee’s disappearance approaches, Neal thinks it is just the stress of having lost her first child, but Kathy is convinced otherwise. And the longer they remain the worse it gets.

Cora Carter is just thirteen and has left the only friends she has ever known back in Ohio. A chance meeting with a Psychic scares her to the core as she is plagued by nightmares and visions that are becoming all too real. Bullied by two girls at school, she retreats further into an ever darker world. In the old barn at the back of the property, she finds an old guitar and a cigar box filled with girls jewelry, while at school she meets a new friend. Together they are all that keep her from going insane.

Little Hannah is the youngest member of the family, she likes their new home and the backyard swing that hangs from the branches of an old oak tree. She likes her new friend too, even if no one else can see her.

As Kathy Carter seeks answers, she turns to the comfort of the old church just down the road. But the answers she finds are too horrifying to believe.

About author Richard Tabaka

Richard Tabaka lives and works along the banks of the Wisconsin River. Since his boyhood days watching horror movies at the local theatre, he has been a fan of all things horror. He would race home from school to watch Dark Shadows on TV or to search the mailbox for the latest issue of Famous Monstes of Filmland. While the stories of Edgar Allan Poe sufficed as a boy, he learned of still more horror authors like Derleth, Lovecraft, Block and Masterson. Soon, names like King, Koontz and Herbert filled the shelves of his library. But he wanted more. Deep inside himself, Richard knew there were stories of his own and now, dear reader, he brings them to you. Are you afraid of the dark?
