The author of the “otherworldly treat” (People) The Drowning Kind and “The Children on the Hill,” which both became bestsellers on the New York Times bestseller list, is back with a spine-tingling psychological thriller about a woman who, after taking in her drunken and dying mother, begins to think that her family is being haunted by demonic possession.
Alison is not someone who gets excited about the holiday of Christmas. In spite of this, she has no choice but to confront it because it is just around the corner and her husband is in the midst of decorating their cozy Vermont house. The phone then rings, and she answers it.
Alison’s mother, Mavis, who she hasn’t spoken to in years has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and has only weeks left to live. Her daughter, son-in-law, and her two granddaughters are the people she would most like to see throughout her remaining days. However, Alison is hesitant to dig up these horrific memories because she endured her mother’s drinking and physical abuse while she was growing up. In spite of this, she eventually gives in and decides to take in Mavis in the hopes that she and her mother would be able to finally mend and have the kind of connection that she has always wished for with her mother.
However, when strange and otherworldly occurrences begin to take place following Mavis’s arrival, Alison begins to have suspicions that her mother is not exactly who she seems to be. And when the joy of the holidays devolves into a nightmarish experience, she is forced to confront the question of how far she is willing to go to protect her family.
