"Spanning a period from shortly before World War One through to the early Seventies, this is a story of rural life in Washington state. But, while rich in realistic detail, it also uses storytelling and dreams to produce a sense of a world of strange and alarming mysteries lying just beyond our own and always ready to break through... There are scenes that may horrify the reader, but that is because it looks clear-sightedly, without rancour, at cruelty, selfishness and deceit. And there is as much beauty here as there is horror, thanks to the author's finely-crafted prose." - David Longhorn, editor of Supernatural Tales
