In Flint House, author Nancetta Liles offers a beautifully wrought and spellbinding testimony to the cruelty of slavery. Told with a good measure of redemption, a caretaker is unable to distinguish between fact and fiction, and the living and the dead. A modern world of voodoo and ghostly encounters opens up to her in this eerie tale set at an estate with an evil past in rural North Carolina. More
An epic haunted house novel that puts the reader’s nerves on edge while telling an all too human story of need, love and haunting history. Rhian Montrose travels to the mountains of Western North Carolina to care for a mentally ill woman living in a home built by her family in the late 1700’s. Rhian’s catatonic charge is only one of the residents in Flint House. Others are quietly walking the mansion’s halls looking for an understanding of their lives as slaves serving a cruel master. Wrought with fear and a desire for revenge, Flint House lives beyond the final page for those who read it.

A bargain at any price, this book is an absolute steal at $1.99.
