Fans of Stephen King, Shirley Jackson, and Cherie Priest will love this Southern Gothic tale about the haunted heart of Appalachia.In Moon Hollow, secrets won't stay buried. Neither will the dead. On the day her mama died, Ruby Barrett stopped hearing the mountain's song, and her daddy, Cotton, climbed into a barrel of moonshine. With no future to look forward to in Moon Hollow, Ruby prays for a miracle to help her escape. When horror author Peter West arrives looking for a story idea to resurrect his failing career, Ruby believes he's the answer to her prayers. But her daddy has some whiskey-soaked prayers of his own. He wants his wife back, and he's willing to strike a deal with the devil himself to make it happen. For Peter to find his big story and Ruby to earn her freedom, they must work together to save Moon Hollow from the ghosts of its past. "A story that will leave you shivering in the dead of summer." -Cherie Priest"Harrowing, haunting, and ultimately triumphant with a deeply satisfying conclusion." -Kevin Hearne"Feels like Stephen King after he really hit his stride." -Stephen Blackmoore.
