Publisher's Summary

Failed academic Frank Nichols and his wife, Eudora, have arrived in the sleepy Georgia town of Whitbrow, where Frank hopes to write a history of his family's old estate - the Savoyard Plantation - and the horrors that occurred there. At first, the quaint, rural ways of their new neighbors seem to be everything they wanted. But there is an unspoken dread that the townsfolk have lived with for generations. A presence that demands sacrifice. It comes from the shadowy woods across the river, where the ruins of Savoyard still stand. Where a longstanding debt of blood has never been forgotten. A debt that has been waiting patiently for Frank Nichols's homecoming...

Major Sound Issues

I *think* this book was well written? I'm just not sure it was because of all the sound jumps... At least 15 times in the first half of the book there were major gaps in the audio. I would be listening along and suddenly it would be as if I had hit the button to the next chapter. This would, in turn, prompt me to scroll back to make sure I hadn't done that or spaced out. I finally gave up about 2/3 of the way through.

I'm not going to comment on the strength of the story or anything else really, because poor sound quality makes any appraisal unfair. It's being returned.

WOULD have been a really fun story...

The quality of the recording really messes this up. Toward the end of chapters - over and over - (AND over!) the audio just SKIPS. There is no way to tell how many words or sentences or paragraphs might be missing. Otherwise an interesting and exciting story and great narrator.
