Description
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
