This little morsel of a book hit so many of the right notes—mysterious disappearances, small town Appalachian gothic, a history of horrors both supernatural and mundane...all things I absolutely adore.  I wish it was twice as long so I could go on enjoying it, but the lack of a perfectly tidy ending feels just right for the narrative.  A lovely brief shudder of horror perfect for summer nights in the woods.   —Caitlin

"Who put Ellen in the blackgum tree?"

Decades after trespassing children spotted the desiccated corpse wedged in the treetop, no one knows the answer.

Kate Thrush and her former college professor, Dr. Judith Kane, travel to Cinderwich, Tennessee in hopes that maybe it was their Ellen: Katie's lost aunt, Judith's long-gone lover. But they're not the only ones to have come here looking for closure. The people of Cinderwich, a town hardly more than a skeleton itself, are staunchly resistant to the outsiders' questions about Ellen and her killer. And the deeper the two women dig, the more rot they unearth ... the closer they come to exhuming the evil that lies, hungering, at the roots of Cinderwich.
