For fifty years fear of the vanishing red house in the Jersey Barrens had warped the lives of Ellen and Pete Yocum.
Old Pete swore that the house moved from place to place and that screams heard within it put a hex on anyone who ventured near.
Meg Yarrow, raised by the Yocums since childhood, experienced the same terror until Nathan, the new farmhand, arrived. One day they started on a search for the red house in the Oxhead woods, only to encounter violent danger—whether due to natural or supernatural causes, they could not tell.
How they found the house and unraveled its eerie secret forms the powerful climax of this outstanding mystery novel.
