Vicki Lane. In a Dark Season. New York: Bantam Dell, 2008.

Elizabeth Goodweather has never liked the look of the old house called Gudger’s Stand. Dolls hanging from the porch, an angry old man, stories of runaway wives and violence–Elizabeth has ignored all that until one December day when she sees an elderly woman jump from the upstairs porch. It’s Miss Nola Barrett and Miz Barrett did not seem deranged or suicidal when Elizabeth met her a month before. Miz Barrett survives the jump, and as Elizabeth tries to help her she is drawn into the dark history of the house, a history that a murderer will do anything to hide.
