Summary of the Book:

When the house at the end of the lane burned down, none of the townspeople knew what happened. A tragedy, they called it. Poor Rita Frost and her ward, Bevan, lost to the flames. Only Mae and Rossa, Rita’s niece and nephew, know what happened that fateful summer.

Only they know about the owl in the wall, the uncanny cat, the dark powers that devour love and fear. Only they know about the trials of loving someone who longs for power, for freedom, for magic. Only they know what brought the house tumbling down around them. And they’ll never, ever breathe a word.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book was a little strange and it did take me a little time to get into it. I can’t even explain the weirdness reading this gave me. I got the feeling that there was more to the story than what I was getting at face value. I mean it was creepy and spooky for a book about witches and haunted house and fire and secrets.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
