Wow, good stuff! It creeps up on you. I slept with a light on after I had read half of it rather late, the scary closet in the book was too much for me.

This book was different in mood and story than other books I have read for a very long time. Although it jumps back and forth in time from the backstory that takes place in Sara's diary to a present day disappearance, McMahon does a great job of melding the stories. Sara, who has lost several children and has a wonderful relationship with her 8 year daughter, but perhaps struggles in her marriage, watches her daughter follow her husband out into the snow. Hours later, when the husband returns, he is alone and completely unaware that his daughter had run out after him. The daughter is found dead in the bottom of a deep well. The darkness and grief that enfolds Sara is really the rest of the novel. The story streams on with an old hag, curses, insanity, and violence. It reminded me of early Stephen King books, where it was hard to draw the line between the real and the supernatural, between real and imagined fears. I will absolutely read more books by Jennifer McMahon. Maybe it's time to get back to horror.… (mere)
