“A writer you’ll hear from more in the future…”
Danny Johnson, author of The Last Road Home
A mysterious locket, a haunted house, and a woman caught between two lovers…
Withdrawn Philadelphia attorney Landrien Moriset has spent most of her life emotionally closed off from everyone around her, and that’s just how she likes it. With a nice little apartment, no lack of lovers, and a caring police officer brother, she has few complaints. She’s living by her own rules, and that’s all that matters. But everything changes when her mother’s sudden death calls her back to the family home in Phoenixville, and she is forced to confront the ghosts of her painful childhood. From a mysterious locket to a dusty old photo album and a box of diaries, what Landrien discovers in the family home threatens to turn her carefully crafted life upside down.
Taking the reader on a journey from snowy Pennsylvania to backwoods Arkansas, Landrien Moriset is Berneta L. Haynes’ quiet, suspenseful debut novel about love, secrets, survival, and sacrifice.
