When the Verners arrive at their new home, a large cabin abandoned by its previous owners, they discover the inside covered in blood. And as the days pass, it is obvious to Amanda that something isn't right on the prairie. She's heard stories of lands being tainted by evil, of men losing their minds and killing their families, and there is something strange about the doctor and his son who live in the woods on the edge of the prairie. But with the guilt and shame of her sins weighing on her, Amanda can't be sure if the true evil lies in the land, or deep within her soul.
This book is spooky without being gory, which is great for me. I hate physical or gory horror but the emotional and religious horror in this book makes for a pretty good Halloween read. It's pretty quick too--great for a night at home during the month of Halloween or in between doing actual work at work. Recommended for fans of scary stories and people who want to join the scary bandwagon but don't like nightmares and watch disney shows and movies on a regular basis like me.
