One year later, a writer moves into a cottage on the edge of the woods that border the same estate.

And what exactly is buried in this haunted ground?

"I can honestly say Lisa Newell is one of my favorite authors of could not stop listening to this book it was so gripping I just wanted to know what happened. I feel this book was very good about building the story through the book there were no slow parts it just was steady and kept me thinking about it all day!"
"As I started this book, I wasn’t quite sure but after the characters were introduced and the storyline picked up, it had my full attention. I really enjoyed the way the two timelines played off of one another; as something was found/revealed in the 2018 part of the story, you are then taken back to before the disappearance and brought up to speed. Lisa Jewell did a great job connecting the two timelines and piecing together all the interconnected characters. Really brilliantly crafted, holding your attention with an interesting story with so many important key players. "
