We always love when Ann Hite has a new book and can’t wait to share it with you all. Please join us for a fun book launch!
Ann Hite takes her readers back to Black Mountain with this haunted short story collection. An array of new characters on the mountain experience ghostly encounters. The collection took inspiration from her beloved readers, who provided writing prompts. Wrinkle in the Air features Black Mountain’s Polly Murphy, a young Cherokee woman, who sees her future in the well’s water. Readers encounter relatives of Polly Murphy as the stories move through time. The Root Cellar introduces Polly’s great grandson, who tends to be a little too frugal with his money until a tornado and Polly’s spirit pays the mountain a visit. In The Beginning, the Middle, and the End, readers meet Gifted Lark on an excessively frigid January day. This story moves back and forth between 1942 and 1986 telling Gifted and her grandmother Anna’s story. This telling introduces spirits that intervene in the spookiest of ways.
