Samantha thought her life was on the upswing when she was adopted from an orphanage by Janet and Paul Rivers who brought her to live with them and their two children in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Samantha began to blossom, making good grades and becoming a cheerleader. But suddenly bad things began to happen in Jacksonville–poisonings, accidents, explosions, murders. As this supernatural thriller opens, Samantha is on the run with Jason, a young drifter to whom Samantha has given her heart. The two young people know that the violence in Jacksonville wasn’t random and that an evil force is coming for Samantha. Their journey takes them to Charlotte and then on to New York City where they learn they must go back to the small town of Melrose, North Carolina so that Samantha can find out who she really is. Before the novel is over, readers will read the stories of Samantha’s mother and grandmother and learn Jason’s true nature.
