Description

A chilling ghost story with a twist: The New York Times best-selling author of The Winter People returns to the woods of Vermont to tell the story of a husband and wife who don't simply move into a haunted house - they build one....

In a quest for a simpler life, Helen and Nate have abandoned the comforts of suburbia to take up residence on 44 acres of rural land where they will begin the ultimate, aspirational do-it-yourself project: building the house of their dreams. 

When they discover that this beautiful property has a dark and violent past, Helen, a former history teacher, becomes consumed by the local legend of Hattie Breckenridge, a woman who lived and died there a century ago. With her passion for artifacts, Helen finds special materials to incorporate into the house - a beam from an old schoolroom, bricks from a mill, a mantel from a farmhouse - objects that draw her deeper into the story of Hattie and her descendants, three generations of Breckenridge women, each of whom died suspiciously. 

As the building project progresses, the house will become a place of menace and unfinished business: a new home, now haunted, that beckons its owners and their neighbors toward unimaginable danger.

Didn’t want it to end

I loved this book! It was creepy and entertaining and even held the family relationship dynamic. So good.

OK story so far - but I cannot take the narrator

I have tried to get past the narration - but I keep finding myself not listening to the story - but to the Amazingly annoying narrators way of reading.
She puts emphasis on the last syllable in each sentence, and pronounces it just a bit more high pitched. I cannot explain it better, English being a second language for me, but it completely ruins the story for me. I have given up now - and will ask for a refund.

good read

I picked this book because I enjoyed this author's previous book, Winter People. I couldn't put this one down either. I liked the slow development of the characters as the story progressed to a peak.

enjoyed ish...

I enjoyed the book overall but wasn't a fan of the narrator.
it's like she put emphasis in the the wrong spots and ran out of air while speaking.
I enjoyed her actual voice but the way she did the reading it was like nails on a chalk board 😬.
the story was decent I enjoyed the amount of history, facts about animals and witch craft the author put into the book but feel like at times it was repetitive or didn't quite fit right?
I hate saying it sucked, it wasnt to the point where I didn't finish or returned the book it just was t my cup of tea I guess.

Yes! A new favorite!

This latest novel by Jennifer McMahon is my new favorite by her. The story kept me engrossed on what would happen next and I loved the performance by Amanda Carlin. Jennifer has a wonderful ability to story tell like you're right there in the middle of it.

A supernatural tale of the past made right

I chose this as I enjoyed the author's book The Winter People and I was not disappointed. Starting with a tragic past event, the story unfurls as a couple with no links to the area or the past event struggle with their own relationship as well as trying to set things right. It is well told and cleverly plotted. A story that will entertain on the second or third telling as much as the first.
