I've received so many books from publishers over the years that finding time to read them is a challenge, so I try to limit my requests to ones I plan to read. I'm not a fan of horror in general (except for certain TV shows that blend in a good dose of comedy to offset it), so I didn't request a copy of the book or read it. But I love promoting speculative authors, so I stayed on the tour.
Here's a brief synopsis of the novel:
Sam Travis lives in a Civil War era farmhouse in Gettysburg, PA, where he awakens one morning to find an old journal with an entry by a Union soldier, Capt. Whiting, written in Sam's own handwriting. When this happens several more times, both at night and during waking, Sam begins to question his own sanity while becoming obsessed with Capt. Whiting and his bone-chilling journal entries. As the entries begin to mimic Sam's own life, he is drawn into an evil plot that could cost many lives, including his own. Can the unconditional love of Sam's daughter, Eva, break through his hardened heart before a killer on the loose catches up with them and Sam's past spurs him to do the unthinkable?
