There are fates worse than death.


In his early thirties, Noah Adams writes of the turning point in his life: a long weekend spent in the company of his estranged father, Scott, a Special Forces soldier who had been gone two years. During their stay in a remote farmhouse out in the Pennsylvania countryside, Noah recalls encountering both bizarre behaviors and horrifying truths.

It is this visit that has shaped the man, husband, and father he has become. For better and for worse.

"...this novella had me completely enthralled until the last lines were behind me. What a tremendous, well-written, and suspenseful study of family, mental illness, and the secrets and experiences that shape a person!"

- Nicholas Trandahl, Author of Good Brave People, Bravery, Pulling Words, and Think of Me
