Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"1965. Growing up in the well-to-d0 town of Round Hill, North Carolina, Ellie Hockley was raised to be a certain type of proper Southern lady. Enrolled in college and all but engaged to a bank manager, Ellie isn't as committed to her expected future as her family believes. She's chosen to spend her summer break as a volunteer helping to register Black voters. As Ellie follows her ideals, fighting for the civil rights of the marginalized, her scandalized parents scorn her efforts and her neighbors reveal their prejudices. And when she loses her heart to a fellow volunteer, Ellie discovers the frightening true nature of the people living in Round Hill. 2010. Architect Kayla Carter and her husband designed a beautiful house for themselves in Round Hill's development, Shadow Ridge Estates. It was supposed to be a home where they could raise their three-year-old daughter and grow old together. Instead, it's the place where Kayla's husband died in an accident - a fact known to a mysterious woman who warned Kayla against moving in. The woods and lake behind the property are reputed to be haunted, and the new home has been targeted by vandals leaving threatening notes. And Kayla's neighbor Ellie Hockley is harboring long-buried secrets about the dark history of the land where her house was built. Tow women. Two stories. Both on a collision course with the truth - no matter what that truth may bring to light."-- Provided by publisher.
