Anna Crestwood was raised in the strict beliefs of a religious sect that’s nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. She’s a lesbian with a ton of baggage, fearful, guilty, and alone. Few things would cause her to leave these familiar surroundings, the job offer of a lifetime being one of them.
So, against her better judgment, she packs her belongings and moves to the Land of Lincoln, a land without mountains, a land of cornfields and soybeans. This event, traumatic as it was, would have been uneventful had her movers not been told to move a critical stone, a stone that blocked the fiery-breath of Hell, setting a dire chain of events in motion, and beginning the ultimate battle between good and evil.
Gabe Garst is a police officer, a powerful medium, and the daughter of Anna’s new landlord. Her work with juvenile delinquents and ghosts is all that keeps her going. Inside she’s dead, certain that her capacity to love is buried with her late wife, six feet under. Grieving, depressed, and alone, suicide seems like her best option. When she stops by Anna’s to check out an electrical problem, she stumbles across hauntings; encounters a demon, old, dark, and dangerous; and senses the stirrings of mutual attraction. Unfortunately, both women must battle personal demons before anything can come of it.
And, they’ll wait almost too long.
