By V J Banis

Jennifer Hale, orphaned and destitute in the wake of the Civil War, arrived at Darkwater full of hope.

The cold reception she received alarmed her. So did the screams of Alicia, the dying mistress of the plantation. Perhaps more frightening was Jennifer’s dangerous attraction to Walter Dere, her handsome employer.

But all fear was forgotten when Alicia’s death freed Walter to propose to Jennifer. Then Jennifer began developing the same symptoms as Alicia. In desperation, she remembered Alicia’s ravings about voodoo.

Could she learn to protect herself from this violent curse? Or would the evil knowledge lead to a fate worse than death itself?

V.J. BANIS is the author of more than 150 books, including classic Gothic romances and major historical novels, some of the best of them being reprinted by Endeavour Media. He currently resides and works in the Blue Ridge region of West Virginia.
