Synopsis

A 3,000-word Kindle short reads tale of suspense, romance, and the supernatural set between the two World Wars in the Appalachians

From Derringer Award winner BV Lawson

The area's mysterious Melungeons - with their olive skin, dark hair and blue eyes - are ostracized and feared, so when a local girl is found murdered after meeting with Melungeon healer Cephea Collins, suspicion falls on Cephea. It's up to local Sheriff Daniel Praeger to uncover the truth, but his investigation may end up digging a little too close to home when he finds himself falling for the main suspect, and his beliefs about science and witchcraft are turned upside down.
