Wheeler, Arkansas, 1907

When their father descends into madness after the death of their mother, Verity Pruitt and her little sister Lilah find themselves on an orphan train to rural Arkansas.

In Wheeler, eleven-year-old Lilah is quickly adopted, but seventeen-year-old Verity is not. Desperate to stay close to her sister, Verity indentures herself as a farmhand. But even charming farm boy Abel Atchley can't completely distract her from the sense that something is not quite right in this little town. Strange local superstitions abound, especially about the eerie old well at the center of the forest. The woods play tricks, unleashing heavy fog and bone-chilling cold . . . and sometimes visions of things that aren't there.

But for Verity, perhaps most unsettling of all is the revelation that her own parents have a scandalous history in this very town. As she tries to unearth the past, sinister secrets come with it--secrets that someone will go to violent lengths to protect . . .
