Bundle Of Evil. . .
The old Victorian
home stands at the top of a hill overlooking Martha's Vineyard, nestled
in a forest of green pines and a rainbow of wildflowers, just a stone's
throw away from the beach. It was Jan Hostetter's dream to convert the
three-story house into a bed and breakfast, but she gladly surrenders
that dream when a miracle occurs: she becomes pregnant. For years,
doctors told Jan she was incapable of conceiving, but now she and her
husband have been doubly blessed with a child on the way and the perfect
place to raise a family.
Annie Wojtoko is in Martha's
Vineyard to help out and share in Jan's happiness, but as the due date
draws nearer, Annie's concern for her best friend grows. The pregnancy
has left Jan frail and without an appetite. She has become
superstitious, covering every mirror in her home, and refusing to leave
under any circumstances, fearing her baby will die if she does. And as
Annie learns the violent history of the house, she comes to realize that
what is growing in Jan's body isn't a miracle at all--but a mother's
most terrifying nightmare. . .
"Sharp and smart, impossible to put down, The Unwelcome Child is a genuine chiller of a ghost story."--Tamara Thorne
