The House on Linden Way
by Elizabeth Maria Naranjo 

While passing through her hometown a decade after she left, Amber Blake impulsively revisits her old house on Linden Way. She only means to stay a moment, to show her three-year-old daughter Bee the place where she grew up. But when the kindly new owners invite them inside, Amber cannot resist.

Soon Bee is missing, the owners have disappeared, and Amber finds herself in a houseful of ghosts. Time takes on new meaning as she loses herself in living memories and a past that does not wish to be forgotten.

As Amber fights the powerful lure of a childhood she’d long left behind, her tenuous hold on the real world slips further from her grasp. Is it merely nostalgia she’s battling, or something far more menacing? Who haunts the house on Linden Way, and where are they hiding her child?

In Kiminee, Illinois, lilacs bloom in winter, and the river sings as it wends through town.

But all is not well in Carly Mae’s family, and when a twister roars though, it decimates far more than their home. Several citizens come to Carly's aid, but not everyone is rooting for her, and when an appalling crime occurs, long-held animosities boil over. Will the good folks of Kiminee pull together—or be torn apart?

There, she becomes the private nurse for the ailing prize-winning novelist, Mr. S., whose famous book about a choice helps her make a difficult one of her own as she loses herself in a relationship with the mysterious Dock, who leads her down a road of denial and impossible choices she never thought she'd have to face.
