Synopsis:

“When New York journalist and recently bereaved mother Charlotte “Charlie” Cates begins to experience vivid dreams about children she’s sure that she’s lost her mind. Yet these are not the nightmares of a grieving parent, she soon realizes. They are messages and warnings that will help Charlie and the children she sees, if only she can make sense of them.

After a little boy in a boat appears in Charlie’s dreams asking for her help, Charlie finds herself entangled in a thirty-year-old missing-child case that has never ceased to haunt Louisiana’s prestigious Deveau family. Armed with an invitation to Evangeline, the family’s sprawling estate, Charlie heads south, where new friendships and an unlikely romance bring healing. But as she uncovers long-buried secrets of love, money, betrayal, and murder, the facts begin to implicate those she most wants to trust—and her visions reveal an evil closer than she could’ve imagined.”

The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young

Rumor has it that this is the first in a series. I do not understand this. It makes for a perfect standalone novel. In fact, this is a great story – spooky, intense, and heartbreaking. Better yet, it kept me guessing until the end.  I enjoyed every minute of it. Will I read future stories, whatever they are? That remains to be seen.
