First in the Horror series!

The small town of Chesterville in the Valley of Dale hides countless horrors; their secrets bleeding into weedy ditches and slithering through dark alleys...


What lies behind the doors in Maple Street should be left locked away, even when a strange key emerges and brings unforeseen bliss. 


The pull of the unknown is too strong for Gertrude and her grieving heart. She dives into a search for a hidden door to forget her husband's untimely death. Doing so, she releases something that could either heal her, or destroy everything she has left in her life: The house she has lived in all her life, her only son, her two grandchildren, and her sanity. 


Can she finish what her ancestors started? Or will her old bones end up buried next to her loved ones' in the hungry soil of the Valley?
