Waiting on Wednesday - House of Echoes



This is a weekly event that highlights a book we can't wait to be published.  It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I don't know anything about the book I selected this week or it's author, Brendan Duffy.  It just sounded good when I read about it.  And the cover art is fairly atmospheric.  Always a plus in my book.  My selection this week is:





by Brendan Duffy
Publication Date: April 14th

In this enthralling and atmospheric thriller, one young family’s dream of a better life is about to become a nightmare.

Ben and Caroline Tierney and their two young boys are hoping to start over. Ben has hit a dead end with his new novel, Caroline has lost her banking job, and eight-year-old Charlie is being bullied at his Manhattan school.

When Ben inherits land in the village of Swannhaven, in a remote corner of upstate New York, the Tierneys believe it’s just the break they need, and they leave behind all they know to restore a sprawling estate. But as Ben uncovers Swannhaven’s chilling secrets and Charlie ventures deeper into the surrounding forest, strange things begin to happen. The Tierneys realize that their new home isn’t the fresh start they needed . . . and that the village’s haunting saga is far from over.

House of Echoes is a novel that shows how sometimes the ties that bind us are the only things that can keep us whole.

  5. Ooh, this upstate New York village sounds positively creepy...in a good way. In the way that leads to hours of page-turning. I have read about other creepy villages in upstate New York, too, so I am very curious if these villages actually exist...LOL. I do want to find out more, though; thanks for sharing. And thanks for visiting my blog.
