About the Book

In Nancy’s youth she and her husband Hank had run away from their small town in Kentucky. It was an attempt to forget their small town roots and Nancy’s native american heritage. The two went to college to earn their degrees; Nancy studied research biology and Hank engineering. Both were very successful in their careers but eventually they both decided that being surrounded by family and the small-town lifestyle would be the perfect place to continue raising their children. While Hank’s job as an engineer is in high demand, Nancy had to give up her career so they could make the move back home. They thought they would be in a country paradise, but were soon faced with strange events that began plaguing their homestead. It began with finding rocks on the roof of their home, strange formations in their yard and not being able to plant any vegetation around their yard are the beginning peculiar and odd signs of a unknown presence that Nancy began using her expertise to try and explain.
