Description

The eerie, disturbing story of one of our perennial fascinations--witchcraft in colonial America--wrapped up in a lyrical novel of psychological suspense. "Once upon a time there was and there wasn't a woman who went to the woods." In this horror story set in colonial New England, a law-abiding Puritan woman goes missing. Or perhaps she has fled or abandoned her family. Or perhaps she's been kidnapped, and set loose to wander in the dense woods of the north. Alone and possibly lost, she meets another woman in the forest. Then everything changes. On a journey that will take her through dark woods full of almost-human wolves, through a deep well wet with the screams of men, and on a living ship made of human bones, our heroine may find that the evil she flees has been inside her all along. In the House in the Dark of the Woods is a novel of psychological horror and suspense told in Laird Hunt's characteristically lyrical prose style. It is the story of a bewitching, a betrayal, a master huntress and her quarry. It is a story of anger, of evil, of hatred and of redemption. It is the story of a haunting, a story that makes up the bedrock of American mythology, but told in a vivid way you will never forget.

Professional reviews

"This grown-up fairy tale gone wrong features Goody, a Puritan woman who goes berry picking in a New England forest. What happens to her there is delivered by narrator Vanessa Johansson. At times spooky, and at times investigative, the story involves Goody's suspenseful attempts to return home. Johansson gives the many female characters their own vocal personas, helping listeners differentiate the women in the woods--Goody and the various strangers she encounters. This story is best enjoyed in audio form because of its meandering plot. Johansson encourages listeners to immerse themselves in the experience. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
