From the Editor

When I was a kid, I thought the woods behind my house went on forever. I would disappear back there for hours, and I always imagined that I could pack up a few things, set up house deep within the forest, and live out my days as a dirty woodland creature. Nothing deterred me from this idea—not the heat, the ever-present ticks and bugs, the chance of getting lost—until I got bit by a snake and realized the woods were much more dangerous than I had imagined. That moment of revelation, now forty years past, came roaring back to me when I read The Unremembered Girl.

In author Eliza Maxwell’s deliciously modern Gothic thriller, Henry and his father, a fire-and-brimstone preacher, discover that a young woman has been living in the woods near their home, and is nearly feral. The preacher wants to save her soul, and Henry falls in love with her, but it all goes horribly wrong. The more Henry tries to help Eve, the darker the situation becomes.

Maxwell drew me in to this story from the first line, and I ended up reading it in one sitting. The prose, the East Texas woods and swamp setting, the story—it all compelled me to turn the pages until I reached the end. Ultimately Henry learns a lesson neither he nor I will ever forget: “You’ll never appreciate the daylight till you’ve walked on the dark side of the night.”

- Danielle Marshall, Editor

About the Author

Eliza Maxwell is the author of The Grave Tender and The Kinfolk. She writes fiction from her home in Texas, which she shares with her ever-patient husband, two impatient kids, a ridiculous English setter, and a bird named Sarah. An artist and writer, a dedicated introvert, and a British cop-drama addict, she enjoys nothing more than sitting on the front porch with a good cup of coffee.
