The House on the Hill

Drawn by the irresistible lure of the past, Kate and Reed return to their hometown of Angel River, where the seemingly-idyllic landscape is dominated by the old house on the hill. Rambling and timeworn, grand and beautiful, the house has been both guardian of dreams, and keeper of secrets.

When a shocking death leads back to a long-ago disappearance, everything that Kate and Reed know will be challenged. What happened in the woods on a hot summer day in 1987? Who is the beautiful orphan accused of murder, and why does Kate feel compelled to help her? How can she and Reed construct a strong future, if the past is built on lies?

As answers to forgotten questions are brought into the light, walls will crumble and foundations will shift. And every soul who has loved and lived in the house on the hill will be changed forever.

And when the last page is turned, they will have to decide: do they close the book forever, or write the next chapter?

The Book of Forgotten Angels is the next installment of the Angel River Series. From the 1880s to the twenty-first century, discover the loves and lives, houses and households, mysteries and magic, of a town named for the angels.
