Jenny only has one dream: to find her daughter, Rosa, who has been wrongfully taken from her by her father, Kyle Bennett, a salesman for a large toy manufacturer, who only wants to protect his daughter and keep it secret from everyone that she is the result of a brief interracial affair that he had with Jenny in the early 50's. For nearly 14 years, Jenny is unaware of their whereabouts, at least until Kyle comes back to New York to the tavern where they first met. At this time, Jenny seizes the opportunity to rummage through the briefcase he accidently leaves behind, and in it she finds a bulletin to a Christmas pageant at a school in Burrillville, Rhode Island. Jenny makes the connection and plans a trip to the remote little town to find Rosa. From the time Rosa was a baby, she and her father lived in an old Graystone mansion, a house that had been empty for 20 years due to the alarming tales from the towns people about murders and hangings. No one in their right mind would dare venture anywhere near the morgue-like mansion that had a history of such horrifying events, including the ghostly sightings of a little girl dancing around the mausoleum at night. Kyle Bennett was not affected by the stories so he proceeded with his plan to live as illusive as possible behind the legendary Graystone walls. Before long he meets and employees Georgene, a librarian from Louisville, Kentucky, to be housekeeper and nanny to his young daughter, but unbeknownst to him, Georgene has her own history of obsessive, psychopathic and homicidal behaviors. In her lonely, cursed life, she is desperate to make him love her. In the darkest corners of her eluded mind she will have him all to herself and there's nothing she won't do to make it happen. The paranormal fantasies and intolerable pressures that control her mind ultimately ignites her inner battles. Young Rosa is determined to avoid her bullying school rival, Alexis Winslow, but soon finds herself entwined in her darkest secret. Alexis uncovers a way to take revenge on a stepfather who has abused her for years, and with the help of her two stepbrothers, they mastermind a way to hide what she did. In this multi-drama novel, good and evil will clash in an explosion that will shake all their worlds.
