CHAPTER 1

October 21, 1799

They were coming.

Men with dogs and guns. Men he’d once called friends and neighbors.

Gabriel Vane wiped sweat from his face and zigzagged deeper into the woods. A sliver of moon shadowed him, ghost-white behind the frantic scuttle of spider clouds. The limited light helped him weave unnoticed through dense pillars of trees, but not without cost. He’d lost count of how many times branches nicked his skin or tore his clothing. On another night he would have dodged the obstacles with ease, but the fever made him clumsy. He tried to vault an overturned tree but misjudged the leap in the darkness. His leg buckled on landing, and his ankle twisted beneath him. Sprawling to his hands and knees, he inhaled the mold of decayed leaves, the peat of hard-packed soil.

  1. Happy Friday! I love that cover Betty! So creepy!!

    My first lines come from The Mother In Law by Sally Hepworth………

    I am folding laundry at my dining room table when the police car pulls up. There’s no fanfare— no sirens or flashing lights— yet that little niggle starts in the pit of my stomach, Mother Nature’s warning that all is not well.

    Have an awesome weekend and stay warm! Happy reading!😊📚💕

    • Yes, it is creepy and the first lines are also, not sure if I want to read it. The mountains here are lovely but the smoke is intense. There is going to be another sunrise this morning. No sign of the cold breaking. It is 16°F. You first lines are intriguing. Have lovely weekend.
