Rita Frost and her ward, Bevan, vanished when their house burned down, and only Mae and her brother Rossa know the truth – the truth about the house’s sinister history, the dark powers lurking in the shadows and the desperate lengths people go to for love. A mysterious and enthralling novel from an author with a rare talent.
The house at the end of the lane burned down, and Rita Frost and her teenage ward, Bevan, were never seen again. The townspeople never learned what happened. Only Mae and her brother Rossa know the truth; they spent two summers with Rita and Bevan, two of the strangest summers of their lives...Because nothing in that house was as it seemed: a cat who was more than a cat, and a dark power called Sweet James that lurked behind the wallpaper, enthralling Bevan with whispers of neon magic and escape.And in the summer heat, Mae became equally as enthralled with Bevan. Desperately in the grips of first love, she'd give the other girl anything. A dangerous offer when all that Sweet James desired was a taste of new flesh...
