A new novel by Karen Demers Dowdall, to be published in November 2015. Anna and Garrett, appear to be ordinary teens growing up in an old colonial farming community in New England. They loved nothing better than spending time in the large forest preserve near their homes looking for American Indian artifacts. One day they found themselves as suspects in the horrific killing of fourteen-years-old Sarah Smith. Anna and Garrett decide to prove their innocent by conducting their own investigation that puts them dead center in the real murderer’s sights. However, there are dark secrets in this pre-revolutionary community that go back to the year 1680 when the first settlers arrived to farm the lands. Anna and Garrett find themselves getting deeper and deeper into the past that will soon threaten to destroy everything they know and love.
