More About Charlotte's Story by Laura Benedict
 
 
 
Overview
The fall of 1957 in southern Virginia was a seemingly idyllic, even prosperous time. A young housewife, Charlotte Bliss, lives with her husband, Hasbrouck Preston "Press" Bliss, and their two young children, Eva Grace and Michael, in the gorgeous Bliss family home. On the surface, theirs seems a calm, picturesque life, but soon tragedy befalls them: four tragic deaths, with apparently simple explanations.

But nothing is simple if Bliss House is involved. How far will Charlotte go to discover the truth? And how far will she get without knowing who her real enemy is? Though Bliss House may promise to give its inhabitants what they want, it never gives them exactly what they expect.

Set in 1957 in southern Virginia, Benedict’s suspenseful, atmospheric follow-up to 2014’s Bliss House finds housewife Charlotte Bliss devastated by the death of her four-year-old daughter. At the family mansion, Charlotte sees the ghost of her mother-in-law, Olivia, also recently deceased, who gradually reveals disturbing secrets about Bliss House, her own past, and Charlotte’s husband, Press. When she tries to flee with their toddler son, Charlotte discovers that Press won’t let her go. Cut off from family, trapped in a house of ghosts, and unable to trust anyone in nearby Old Gate, she realizes Olivia may be her only ally. Expertly paced revelations help build a sense of encroaching horror, though readers new to the series may feel they’re missing important background. Sexual violence runs throughout, and while Benedict avoids graphic detail, scenes of rape, sadism, and an orgy will likely trouble some readers. Others, however, will find this a satisfyingly creepy tale for a rainy night. Agent: Susan Raihofer, David Black Agency. (Oct.)
