Forget Everything You Thought You Knew About Vampires
For over two hundred years the slaves of Johnson’s plantation have whispered tales about the little girl from the woods. They think she is a ghost, a spirit. But as one man is about to discover, she is much more. His name is Henry, a former slave who after the Civil War still lives and works on the plantation on which he was held in bondage. For reasons he does not understand, though he is a free man, he has not been able to leave the plantation, not even to search for the woman he loves who was sold away. But one terrible night will change everything, and Henry will be forced to flee the only home he has ever known. And he will not go alone.
