When the Ericksons move home to care for their ailing grandmother, they’re told a stranger has taken up residence in the attic of the sprawling mansion. Upon investigation, the family isn’t sure the tenant is anything more than a figment of old Mrs. Erickson’s imagination—until a mysterious young woman begins to show herself to the family in fleeting, uncanny visits.
When unexplained things start happening under the mansion’s roof, suspicions arise as to just who—or what—she is. In the chaos that ensues, the family is forced to make a decision: trust the stranger or band together as a family against her—and their grandmother who’s protecting her.

This was an unexpected read!! It starts out like “Burnt Offerings”, a family moving into a house that is going to be left for them, leaving the big city for a more rural life for their young child, and a mystery woman in the attic…. seemed typical. THIS BOOK IS NOT TYPICAL!!
With unexpected elements of an almost sci-fi nature, you will not be disappointed with a mundane tale. It’s very hard to say too much about this book without giving things away, but I LOVED the back story of Amira and everything she went through in life. That was, absolutely, my favourite part of the book!
My one complaint would be that the ending seemed a little rushed. You get this wonderful, detailed back story…. then it seemed like Misty just brought us back to the present and went “LET’S END THIS THING!!” And, BAM! …It’s done. Of course, in saying that, I can’t wait to see what happens next!!

About the Author
Misty Mount has written since age five and was first published at fourteen. By day she’s a caregiver, wife, and mother to a young son but during the quiet hours of night she becomes a novelist.
“I read because my grandmother showed me how to immerse myself in books for recreation, relaxation or even as a coping skill.
I write because my head is filled with daydreams and I like to choose the endings.”
